Default Finished UWorld, what next?

Hey everyone,
So I finally finished UWorld, cumulative 78% (overall correct 70%), and I was wondering what I should do next? I feel like even though I was able to perform relatively well on UWorld, there are so many things I've forgotten from FA. I thought up of 2 ideas:

1) Start reviewing FA everyday along with reviewing UWorld again. Once I finish FA, take an NBME to gauge my level. Then continue doing FA and UWorld. Then start DIT in August with my 4th review of FA and finish it off with an NBME. Continue with FA review for the 5th time and take an NBME after and go to exam (entirely conditional upon NBME scores.)

2) Do an NBME, then complete DIT, then take another NBME. After that, continue with reviewing UWorld and FA until exam date and keep taking NBMEs in between.

I thought of doing another Qbank but I don't know if I'll have the time with doing UWorld all over again.

As of now, I like plan 1 more, what do you guys think?

Thanks in advance!
