Hi, I am in Irvine too and studying for step 1. I am an old IMG and would like to join you. I am doing pathology but I can change my schedule so we are doing the same subject. I went to UC Irvine library a few times but parking and noise were a bit of a problem so I tried Newport Beach and Tustin libraries. Anyhow, location is not a problem. We can try and follow a timetable together so there is moral support and accountability. Please e mail me at [email protected] and we can chart out a study plan.Need a serious study partner to start step 1 and finish it within 6 months. I study at UC Irvine library. I'm starting with biochemistry and will be more than happy to have companion to end this journey as soon as possible.
