Default Postpone?

I take my USMLE on the 12th (one week), I took NBME 7 one week ago and scored 390/207 today I took NBME 16 and scored 450/217, I am a DO and I am taking COMLEX on the 17th, I have been studying more from Uworld rather than from my combank. I took two comsae's one a month ago form A (462) and another 2 weeks ago Form D (500).

My goal is at least a 550 for COMLEX and 230 for USMLE. What do you think? Should I postpone my USMLE to just study for COMLEX?

I am planning a trip to Costa Rica for the end of the month, I was thinking I can take COMLEX on the 17th and postpone USMLE till mid July. Does anyone think 2 extra weeks for USMLE after I get back from Costa Rica will do much good? Should I just take it now and get it over with and enjoy my only vacation?

Thanks for the advice,
Nervous Med Student

Hey friend! Do you think you can enjoy your vacation when you didn't take Step 1 and it is still in the back of your head?
I don't want to advise you anything, cause it is your decision.
