Hi Tima,
Happy Holidays to you as well

In my experience I found that NBME Scores are +/- 5 three digits from the real exam. So in worse case scenario your USMLE score will be 211/88.

So you are in the safe zone, if passing is all what you needed. But if you want 90+ score then I should postpone your exam a little bit.

Wish you a great 2010 with Step1 in your pockets
