AFK Dill

Post by Dill on Mon Apr 30, 2012 6:36 pm

On June 7th I'll be taking the USMLE Step 1 exam. It's an 8-hour exam costing $900 to take and tests over everything I've learned in med school thus far. It's a barrier exam and must be passed to continue my education. Similar to the SAT/ACT for getting into College or the MCAT/LSAT for getting into medical school/law school, hospitals look at the Step 1 score to evaluate applicants for residency programs.

I sent an email to my family regarding my schedule for the next ~6 weeks and I figured I'd share it with all of you as well so you know I'm not dead or eternally AFK:

Dill's Study Schedule wrote:
My day basically works out to:

7:30 a.m. Wake up/Breakfast
8:00-12ish (12:20 max) – Study
12-1: Lunch
1-5: Study
5-7: Dinner/Break/Shower/Walk Dogs, etc.
7-11: 50 Questions from the Question Bank + Review all questions, 15 Pharm Flash Cards + Review previous pharm cards, Review material from the day
11:30: Sleep
7:30am – Glance over yesterday’s material, repeat

I’ll have 1 half-day of ‘break’ every 7 days and occasionally will take a 200 question 4-hour practice exam to see if my scores are improving.

This is going to be a very rigorous and demanding schedule and will be tough to keep this up for nearly 6 weeks. It’s strange having the entire day planned out where every minute is a minute I need to be studying. I just hope I can stick with it.

Anyway, as this will totally consume my life for a while, I will be relatively inactive from all LO responsibilities (not as inactive as Kro) and match scheduling (not as inactive as TnO). I would like to appoint Panda as hB's official match scheduler (Bugen/BJ too) as so we don't have to double forfeit our final playoff matches. I'll still be on the forums daily and be around, but I just won't be on steam (too distracting) at all. PM me if you need to contact me.

I'll see you all on the other side!
