Your are doing really well buddy. You still have like 23 days left and I'm sure you will cross 250. Just relax don't allow the anxiety to take over you.

I can't really say about DIT because I haven't watched DIT videos. But you should focus on you weak areas like do wrong UW questions and the area with which you do not feel comfortable or have got low score. I see members here recommend DIT but I can't tell what is the right time to do it. So, wait till some experts post their comments.

It's been voted that nbme 7 is most predictive. So if u take exam today u would be getting 240 or - / + 2. Giving that u have 21 or 3 wks left, it means u r likely to be in 250s shd u work harder on ur weakness. The minimum u would get is around 240 I bet u if u maintain ur composure in the real exams.
