6 hrs daily of hardcore reading and note taking and another at least 4 hours of UW, should be fine. Do NBME right now to get a good idea where you are at. In two months another NBME or UWSA. Then two weeks before do NBME 4 and FRED.

YES YOU CAN DO IT!! Stick to the schedule and yes it is possible!

Default UWSA

I think its better to leave UWSA till the end because that corelates best with the actual exam score.

I agree with Water!
UWSA can be a big confidence booster in the end. 1.5months for the books and 2months exclusively for Uworld and the last two weeks for a quick revision of your Uworld annotations and MTB would be my plan.

That really depends on how well you want to do Uworld. If your read is just a read you can manage one block in 3hours. 1hour solving a block and 2hours reading the explanations. That way you can do it thrice in two months.

But I spend my entire day doing one block because I read annotate and then try and memorize then move onto the next block. Uworld is my main source. I didnt study other sources much so thats why its necessary for me.

But its entirely upto you how you study better.
