Yup - do an NBME now then spend the month doing UW and maybe Goljan audio if you have time - it's 2000 questions so its' 500 questions a week. This is not that easy to absorb - each of these explanations are huge and you'll get tired and forget stuff so keep at it..

Once you're done with UW and Goljan audio then write another NBME and see where you are. 4 weeks out if you're in the 450+ range you'll be okay - then spend the last month doing FA and your own notes from UW and maybe either a qbank like consult or something else and then do an nbme or two in the last couple of weeks and that will tell you if you're ready to go.

You should post here regularly during your UW month and your NBME scores - people can guide you as to what to do next.
