2020.09.30 21:53 MSthree3183 on NBME to 249 in 20 weeks (a realistic account)
My Step 1 "dedicated" was an absolute mess, partly due to Covid and partly due to a lack of discipline and structure. People say you need to build a super detailed 6 week schedule and follow it to the T, only deviating to use the restroom, sleep and eat. Within the first day I think I woke up 2 hours late according to my schedule and decided to never look at it again. Do not confuse a good plan with a good outcome. Planning is indispensable but plans are useless as the quote goes. My goal was a 240+. My approach initially was to watch and finish as many of the tried and true learning resources (Pathoma, Sketchy Micro, Sketchy Pharm, Pixorize) as quickly as possible and then move on to doing questions from QBanks (Uworld). In retrospect, I completely overestimated my level of preparedness at the beginning of dedicated (started with a 183) and was way too confident regarding how quickly I could get through the resources. What began as a 6 week dedicated in late April turned into 4 months (May - September) of pride-shattering humiliating setback after humiliating setback. I’ve never been so humbled in my life. I had to push my test back twice (I originally scheduled it for June 10th, but pushed back to July 31st then eventually to Sep 13th). I made so many bargains with myself and with God in that time and stayed awake until 3am on countless nights ruminating on what kind of specialty I would be able to go into, the impact this test would have on my future family, and so much else. I missed a lot of hangouts with friends, but paradoxically, even though I was “super busy” I would somehow find myself using YouTube or social media as escapes, sometimes binging for 3 to 4 hours on end after getting a bad NBME score. Overwhelming guilt would ensue and I’d oversleep until 11am or 12pm for days afterwards before getting back on track. It was a dark time but thankfully I continued to exercise and eat well throughout. I also had a great group of friends who I quarantined with and they kept me sane with hikes and happy hours. Do not underestimate the emotional and mental toll you have to pay for a “good” step score, whatever that means. Don’t forget your priorities in life, especially your reasons for trying so hard in the first place. Okay enough moralizing, let’s dive into some specifics: Here are the resources I used, not in order of chronicity but in order of importance. UWorld - Only got through 66% of the QBank with 72% correct. I wish I had finished all the questions but I ran out of time towards the end. I always did questions in 40Q blocks on timed random. I would take notes using the notes feature during the block and I found it incredibly helpful to write out my reasoning process. I used the highlighter often. At first I moved very slowly in reviews, because of my total lack of a scientific foundation. Sometimes I reviewed one block for 2 to 3 hours. Towards the end of my study period I would go straight to the last sentence and read what the last sentence was asking. This helped me apply a filter so to speak as I went back and read the question. As soon as I finished a block I would quickly review it right then and there, using a google spreadsheet to mark the question as correct or incorrect. I would then write out the key piece of information that I lacked which caused me to get the question wrong, for example “I got this wrong because I forgot that factor V leiden is caused by an inability to degrade factor V, leading to MORE coagulation and hypercoagulability, not LESS.” NBMEs/UWSAs - I dreaded taking these. Especially the NBMEs. I never got above a 227 on a NBME and my performance actually decreased from July 19 to August 23 and August 29th. April 27 - NBME 22 - 183 May 2nd - NBME 21 - 181 May 17 - UWSA1 - 217 July 19 - NBME 24 - 227 August 23 - NBME 18 - 223 August 29 - NBME 23 - 222 September 7 - UWSA2 - 247 September 12 - Free 120 - 83% or 243 according to the score predictor September 13 - Real Step 1 - 249 Anki - I would make Anki cards based off of UW questions that I got wrong. I tried to keep up with Anki as much as possible during the 4 months I eventually spent studying, but I was inconsistent with my efforts: some days I did 9 cards and others I did 900. Between April and September I only didn’t do any Anki on 4 or 5 days. According to my stats I averaged about 240 cards a day. My deck at the end of dedicated had 9730 cards, 5840 (61%) of which were mature, 2230 (23%) of which were young+learning and 8% (800) which I never even got to (unseen). I used Zanki for Pathoma and Adytumdweller’s Pixorize deck (massively helpful) for Pixorize. Finally, I used Pepper Pharm and Pepper Micro for Sketchy Pharm and Micro respectively. I found that there were certain pharm cards (ADRs for example) that were way too hard in the Pepper deck. Who the hell can remember all 9 of Amiodarone’s ADRs in one go?? So for those I supplemented by finding the individual Zanki Sketchy Pharm cards. It was worth it to spend time doing 9 individual cards as opposed to the 1 that I never remembered. In retrospect, some of the Anki cards I made were way too long and DID NOT INTEGRATE and relate to other topics. I encourage you to make your Anki cards with a low cognitive burden in mind. More than 4 cloze deletions at a time will break your momentum during reviews. On a similar note, it was super helpful for me to include little snippets of information on my cards that helped me tie topics together. For example, on a card on hemochromatosis I would write “hemochromatoSIX - HFE - mutation on chromosome 6, Wilson's chromosome 13” to keep those salient mnemonics and related topics at the top of my mind. Another favorite example is "SarcOID - Schaumann & asterOID (bodies) and sterOIDs (treatment)" I would then screenshot the First Aid page on the back of the card as well to look over the whole topic and related topics if I wanted to. Anki made it so that on test day I could recall information and draw connections very quickly having seen it 4 or 5 times before. I got a 526 on my MCAT by using Firecracker, which was basically a knockoff version of Anki back in the day so I knew how important spaced repetition and recall were. I hate to admit this but in the last 2 months of studying I would do Anki on my laptop while walking on a treadmill. This kept me focused and awake. I probably looked like an absolute psychopath but this was huge for me. Pathoma - I had done 70% of Pathoma during MS1 but finally went through all of the videos again over the course of 3 months during dedicated. Pathoma is the quickest and best way to get through Pathology at the right level. Goljan audio lectures - Found them on spotify under “Daddy Goljan Lectures”. For God’s sake listen to Goljan. He serves you up Biochem, Pharm, Physiology and Pathology in entertaining vignettes with hilarious jokes interspersed in a question and answer format. It’s like you’re having a conversation with the old man. I mastered so many topics because of his explanations alone. For example, I would have never understood the difference between dead space and V/Q mismatch without his help, or that in septic shock venous O2 is actually increased. Every chapter is important, but I think the first 5 were absolute gold. I listened to all 15 or so of the lectures 2 or 3 times between April and September, usually on bike rides or runs or in the car. Not a lot of the information stuck at first but as I did more and more UW questions I would recognize a topic in the podcast and go “oh!!!! That’s why that is the right answer!” I would run or bike almost every evening during dedicated and would listen to goljan then. Pixorize - I got through ~70% of the Biochem videos and ~30% of Immuno. In biochem, I did all of the Vitamins, Biochem pathways, Lipids, Porphyrias. I did most of the AD diseases, Metabolic Disorders, Lysosomal Storage diseases, glycogen storage diseases, chromosomal abnormalities, collagen disorders, DNA repair, lung cancers, neuro disorders, and vasculitides. I did probably 30% of the Misc, none of the onc drugs, some of mitochondrial, some tox and no mechanoreceptors. I found vitamins, AD diseases, DNA repair and Lung cancer to be the most high yield topics. For Pixorize Immuno I only did immunosuppressants, immunodeficiencies, transfusion reactions and transplant rejections because they were the most high yield and required more pure memorization. I found Pathoma’s Immuno chapter to be quite good at covering the rest. I will say HS reactions were super high yield in general but I didn’t watch the Pixorize vids for them. I also had watched all of the Boards and beyond Immuno videos during MS1 and that probably subconsciously helped me on immuno more than I give it credit for. I only started Pixorize during dedicated. I did not touch it during MS1 but I wish I would have. Sketchy Micro and Pharm: If I could have done things differently, I would have tried to go through the Sketchy Pharm videos earlier. They are SO HELPFUL!!! A lot of people question their utility because of how much physiology they start with in each video and just how long the videos are, but man I can’t imagine every comprehending pharm without Sketchy. I got 21 of 22 questions on UWSA2 in the pharm section correct, solely because of Sketchy Pharm. Micro is both easy to get through and incredibly helpful. You just have to watch Micro. I had already gone through Micro once very diligently during MS1 so I only watched about 60% of the videos and only got through maybe 50% of the Pepper cards during dedicated. That came back to bite me as there were 2 questions on my real test about parasites that I was weak on. Below is a narrative of my timeline: June 2018 to June 2019: MS1 - our school gives CBSEs in December and June of our first year. I was one of those MS1s who wrote “270” on their bathroom mirror as a goal and thought I was a BAMF. I inconsistently did Anki during MS1 for certain disciplines. For example, for our neuro block I did Zanki Neuroanatomy. The big decks I mastered were Sketchy Micro (Pepper Micro specifically) and portions of Sketchy Pharm. I also inconsistently watched Boards and beyond for topics I struggled with. For our Pathology block I got through about half of Pathoma and Zanki but didn’t keep up with it at all as soon as MS2 started. I got a 161 in December of MS1 and a 165 in June on the CBSEs. June 2019 to March 2020 MS2 - This is our clinical year as we do all of preclinical during MS1 in 12 months. I did okay during clinicals, honored half of my shelves and used mostly UW and Amboss + Tzanki. I got a 172 in December of MS2 on the practice CBSE the school gives. Pretty terrible. March and Covid - By mid-March I had done nothing for Step 1 during MS2 year. I remember I had all these high aspirations to finish Amboss Qbank by March and get a head start on UW. However, ain’t nobody got time for that during the clinical year. All of MS2 year I basically just focused on clinical shelves and step 2 material. In mid April, an announcement from our school came out that they were making us push our step 1 dates up by 6 to 7 weeks, in order to make up our last rotation during what would have been our dedicated study period. I had originally scheduled my test for July 31 but had to move it to June 10th, in order to make up my Internal Medicine rotation between June 15 and July 24. I finished my Psychiatry/Neurology rotation from home on April 24 and started my 7 week dedicated on April 27. (sorry, lots of dates). April - At the start of dedicated I generally tried to do 2 UW blocks in the morning and review them/ make anki cards based off of them that same day. I would also try to watch some Pathoma/Sketchy videos and move those Anki cards into my Step 1 deck. This meant I moved VERY SLOWLY. Side note: I sincerely believe that everyone who comes into dedicated with a 240 NBME has for sure already gone through one Qbank, watched all of Pathoma/Sketchy/Pixorize and done all of the Anki cards for those resources. Otherwise, there’s no other way to start with such a good foundation! These amazingly disciplined students then spend 6 weeks just finessing their testing strategy and then crank out a 260 on test day. Meanwhile, students like me who goof off MS1 year will usually start dedicated with a…. 1st NBME, April 27 - 183. This was taken on my first day of dedicated. I took it with a friend and the whole time we were like “wtf… I have no idea what the hell is going on”. I legitimately guessed on 8 out of 10 questions on that exam. It rattled my cage. Over the next week I used NBMEanswer(s) (when it was free) to review the questions I got wrong. This took me 2 and a half full days. Anyone who says it takes 3 hrs to review an NBME is lying or a demigod. 2nd NBME, May 2nd - 181. Blood pressure rising. I was 5 weeks out from my “scheduled date” of June 10 and not even passing... I decided to take 2 weeks to prep for UWSA1. I was still in the illusory world of denial saying “I can break 240 in 5 weeks time!” No. That was my pride speaking. If you have no mastery over any of the topics, you need more time. UWSA1 - May 17th, 217. This was a rude awakening to say the least. The first of many humblings. I decided to push my test back to July 31st after realizing how hopeless my situation was. UWSA1 usually overpredicts your score so I was probably getting a 200-205 on the real thing at this point. I re-prioritized my time to finish Pathoma/Sketchy/Pixorize ASAP over the next 6 weeks. But once again I overestimated my own discipline and I didn’t finish Pathoma until August… 12 weeks later. June - I started my IM rotation on June 15 and this actually really helped me understand some key topics (Renal Pharm, CV Pharm and Phys, etc.) I remember the feeling of breaking 80% for the first time on UW. It felt amazing. And then I got a 55% on the next block :D Although I had less time in the day because of clinical duties, I still probably watched 2 or 3 videos a night and did maybe 1 UW block as well. I was slowly working my way through Pathoma/sketchy during June. July - During week 5 of my IM rotation, on July 19th, I took my 3rd NBME and got a 227. I was 2 weeks out from my July 31 date. I was happy to have made some good progress (181 on May 2 to 227 on July 19 over 10 weeks) but I still felt like a total failure. I had only gotten through maybe 70% of Pathoma at this point and 30% of Pixorize and Sketchy Pharm. There was stillso much material I had yet to learn.This is when I began to realize that I lacked URGENCY. I was way too nonchalant about studying and would sometimes have a champions league game going while trying to do Anki. Hint: this does not work!!! Also, I had wanted to be comfortably cruising on NBMEs in the 240s by this point, in order to safely break 240 on test day. I emailed my dean of student affairs and he said it would be difficult to add 15-20 points in 2 weeks. I texted my classmates and they agreed. I called my other brother (a PGY2) and he said “you only get one shot at this, make sure you feel comfortable before you take it”. I made the difficult decision that night to push my test back to Sep 13th. I was starting a 1 year MBA program on August 3rd but knew I could make time in the afternoons and evenings to study. August - I kept grinding through Pathoma (with more urgency now) and finished it in early August. I started working through the remaining Sketchy Pharm and Pixorize I had in mid August and finished Sketchy Pharm in late August. Crucial to note: I had only done 20% of UW by August 23rd. I was so scared to use UW without having all my content covered that I delayed using the single most important resource. I shot myself in the foot big time. On August 23rd I took NBME 18 and got a 223. Utter humiliation again. I thought: “4 points LOWER than the NBME I took 5 WEEKS AGO?!?” I called my brother in an anxious rut, devastated. He asked me “how much UW have you done?” I told him "800 or so questions". He said “bro, you’re trying to run a marathon on one leg, what the hell are you doing” — because of him I adjusted my plan and made the goal to do 1500 questions over the next two weeks, roughly 120-160 questions a day. On August 29, six days later, I scored a 222 on NBME 23. I was LIVID. However, in retrospect I remember taking that test scared out of my mind and a bit too wired on caffeine. I took that test with way too much pressure on my shoulders. I remember dropping f bombs left and right in that test and getting super frustrated. Remember, these practice tests are PRACTICE. They are not the real deal. The point of taking them is to LEARN from them, not to have them determine (or destroy) your self worth. This article by Ben white gave me serious perspective on how to correctly approach practice test anxiety. I was 2 weeks out exactly from my Sep 13th test date at that point. (Tangent: people say “save UW til dedicated” — I don’t agree with this at all. If you make Anki cards based off UW and consistently do them, it is way better to do UW early in your MS2 year. Maybe start on it 6 months before your Step 1 date… as long as you have a way to review the information UW teaches you, start whenever you want. The earlier you master UW content, the better. Sure, save maybe 1200 or so questions for dedicated but you absolutely do not have to save all 3000+ questions for a 6 week dedicated period. In fact I would advise against it.) For the next 8 days (between Aug 30 and Sep 7) I cranked out 160 questions a day in UW, focusing on reviewing my incorrects immediately afterwards using the google spreadsheet method I wrote out above. I think this was crucial in getting me to externalize my reasoning process. I was starting to get >80% in UW more often and even broke 90% a few times. My scores were still pretty variable though. My last 10 UW scores (between sep 6 and sep 3) were 75, 75, 85, 60, 72, 77, 82, 67, 72 and 62. On September 7th, I took UWSA2 1 week out from my actual test and scored a 247 (2 points lower than my eventual score). I cannot describe the incredible relief I felt getting that score. To this day I still don't know why the NBMEs were not accurate representations of my knowledge and that UW was. But I didn't care. I finally had something resembling hope. All the topics were finally coming together. Over the next week I reviewed UWSA2, did Anki like crazy to not lose my reviews, but internally I relaxed a bit knowing that UWSA2 was the most predictive test. On Saturday Sep 12th, one day before my exam, I took the Free 120 and got 83% correct. This was the second confirmation that I was ready to sit for my exam. I was super relieved and thankful for this score. The score predictor equated this to a 243 and generally the conventional wisdom is that the Free 120 (because it is written by the USMLE) is very representative of the questions you will see on test day. I can’t agree more. When I took my test on Sep 13 I felt like I was taking the Free 120. The wording was very similar and of course the format is the exact same. Sep 13 was test day. During my test there were basically 3 types of questions I came across:
60% were super easy questions that I recognized in 5-10 seconds and that I spent 30 seconds on in total.
25% were questions that I likely got correct, but had to spend 60 - 90 seconds thinking about.
15% were questions I had no idea how to even approach. I didn’t even know how to narrow down the answer choices. I spent 3 to 4 minutes just drooling at the screen hoping divine revelation would occur.
I finished each section with 10 minutes or more to spare and took breaks after blocks 2, 4 and after each of the last 3 blocks. My biggest takeaway from test day would be to not second guess the easy questions. Yes, the question is actually asking you just for the MOA of penicillin. In general, eliminate any answer choices you can and then go with your gut. If you have no idea, follow Ben White's example and don't ruminate. Just guess and move on. Don't let one question sink your ship! When I finished the test, I thought it was just like the free 120. I thought I would break 240 but I was overjoyed when I saw my score of 249. All the work paid off. I called my family immediately to celebrate. For MS1s reading this: get through Pixorize, Pathoma, Sketchy Micro and Sketchy Pharm alongside your curriculum if you can. Do the Anki decks along with that if possible. I hear Anking is the new go to deck. For MS2s reading this: If you can have pathoma, sketchy pharm + micro and pixorize mastered and anki-ed by the start of dedicated, you will be in an amazing position. Then just spend dedicated cranking through UW and focusing on your weak areas. Some thoughts about testing strategy and First Aid: When you are learning material, do not learn the material in isolation. For example, when you learn about Primary biliary cholangitis, learn it in the context of its mimics aka Primary sclerosing cholangitis and Secondary biliary cholangitis. Same thing with the nephritic and nephrotic syndromes and basically all other topics. You want to learn how to distinguish and differentiate PSGN from Goodpasture or Wegener’s on test day, not just the isolated facts about PSGN. In that vein, focus on the SALIENT distinctions that separate pathologies from one another. First Aid is built for this! The tables are designed to help you compare and contrast topics so you can eliminate close but ultimately incorrect answer choices on test day. For example, consider Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and its relationship with anti-microsomal antibodies. No other pathology will show anti-microsomal antibodies (i.e. anti-microsomal Abs are pathognomonic/specific for Hashimotos), so make sure you have those specific associations down pat. Quotes that got me through studying “The work you are doing now can never be undone” - every day that you work and study you are building an unshakeable foundation! I’m a runner, so just as every mile in training builds your strength, every effort you put into studying builds your mastery. “The pain of discipline is nothing compared to the pain of disappointment” - I remember thinking about this quote a lot during MCAT prep. No explanation needed. I knew I had a goal and I took the steps necessary to put myself in a position to reasonably attain the goal. “We do not rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training” - meaning, if you do all of UW and averaged >70-75% on the first pass, you are most likely in a decent place. Continuing the running analogy, if you’re training for a 10K and put 8-10 weeks of 30-40 mile weeks in and run an 8K at or near goal pace the week before your race, you’ll probably be ready on race day. What this quote is also saying is that reality does not care about your aspirations or high hopes. Reality cares how much actual work, training and practice you have put in to attain your goal. That’s all I got. I hope this was helpful for you to read! Please comment or DM with questions. Thanks to all on this subreddit for your contributions during covid and best of luck to future examiners!
2020.09.30 20:23 medicalstudent2019217 → 244 today. Tears of joy. For my fellow underdogs, here is some inspiration!
Real deal: 244!!! I'm ecstatic! Here is an inspirational comeback story for my fellow underdogs. Step 1: 217 Extremely devastating and depressing. I was predicted to get a 230 and was such a hot mess for a long time after getting my score back. I know this is dark, but I literally contemplated taking my life and cried a lot. It made my third year very hard for me. I took off three weeks during my second rotation because I truly hit rock bottom in many areas of my life. Things totally turned around after that, and here is my step 2 story! Rearranged in order: Nbme 7 (2.5 months out): 202 This was on rotations, so I felt satisfied starting with this as a baseline. UWSA1 (2 weeks out from my original date): 213 Yeah, so I freaked out and pushed my exam back immediately. I noticed on my score report that I did poorly on OB/GYN, Surgery, and Medicine. I temporarily stopped using UW and reviewed each subject individually on AMBOSS. On top of this, I prioritized getting more sleep. After doing AMBOSS questions (which were super clutch and a great way to diversify my knowledge), I went back to UW doing random TIMED blocks on those same three subjects. Although uncomfortable, getting used to timed blocks came in so clutch! It made taking practice tests 10x easier for me. Nbme 6 (2.5 weeks out from new date): 232 Yay!! I was happy with the improvement, but I still wanted to hit a 240 Old free 120 (2 weeks out): 76% I was happy with this as well, and according to a random score converted, it equated to a 241 apparently. UW%: Idr the original %, but it was around the 25%ile. Second time: 70% In my opinion, it is better to focus on getting used to timed blocks rather than having a better UW% on tutor mode. You don't get to use tutor mode on test day and the %ile doesn't always mean much. UWSA2 (1 week before): 240 I was hyped! New free 120 (3 days before): 68% I didn't do NBME 8. So yeah, that is my story! I am super excited and feeling very thankful. There are a lot of ups and downs on the journey of becoming a doctor. A year ago, I didn't post or flex about my 217 lol. Remember that people typically do not advertise or share their hardships online nearly as much as the people who kill exams. If you hit a bump in the road, it WILL be okay and you definitely are not alone! Hope this helps someone out there who may be going through a hard time. P.S.: I never did amazing on shelf exams. Scored in the 60's on my first 4, and 70's on my last four.
2020.09.30 19:54 gleo1005Low 210s Step 1 to a mid 240s Step 2 CK
Hi everyone!! I just got my score back today and am absolutely stunned by the improvement. There's so many 260+ CK write-ups on here and I always told myself if I were to make any significant bumps from my poor Step 1 score I would definitely wanna give back to this community a little and share any insights I learned along the way. Pre-clinical years: We have a P/F curriculum and I pretty much tested in the 70-80%s on exams. My UWSAs were upper 220s walking into Step 1 so I was pretty shocked by the nearly 20 point decline on the real deal, but it is what it is. 3rd year shelves: Consistently bad, like around 30th percentile for just about every shelf except in my area of interest. It was demoralizing because I tried a lot harder in my 3rd year than in my pre-clinical years knowing that I had a lot of improvement to make for CK. Main mode of studying throughout 3rd year included UW questions, Holliday powerpoint whenever possible, and sprinkles of OME which I'm not sure were ever that helpful. Holliday reading def. gave me actual questions on the exams and I can't really say OME ever did anything more than some cute general information that helped me look less stupid on the wards. CK study course: By the start of dedicated (July 2020), I had already gotten through about 70% of UW just going through 3rd year, ~60% correct. I re-set it and did a complete pass during dedicated (one month), improving to about 70% correct. Took notes on all my mistakes or even on the questions I got right if there were high-yield nuggets of information in the answer explanations I would just throw that into my notes. A few days before my exam, I took UWSA2 and scored 240. Two days before, I panicked because what if I had another 20 point drop on CK like I had done for Step 1? I ended up delaying my exam for two more weeks, even though I was going to be on a rotation during that time. In retrospect, definitely a bad decision. Two week delay became a 4 week delay because my August clinical rotation was my AI and I was only getting about 1-2 hours of CK review a day, if even, during that month. After the Aug AI, I was pulled out of rotations due to a COVID exposure and figured if I'm going to be doing nothing for 2 weeks at home might as well push back the test again, and so I did. Unfortunately my UW subscription EXPIRED so I wasn't even able to use those last 2 weeks to review incorrects. Thankfully, I had taken pretty extensive notes at that point and for my last 2 weeks I ONLY did content review, NO questions, NO practice exams that might freak me out again, etc. I studied my UW notes, read through the book "Secrets" (it's just okay), read some book I found on Amazon called Dr. High Yield (also just okay, and not up to date on some information), and read through Divine podcast transcripts (much better high yield info than Secrets/Dr.HY). I have the worst attention span and probably put in ~6 hours of quality, focused, reading per day those last two weeks. The night before my exam, I tossed and turned and got terrible in and out sleep for about 5 hours. Thoughts right after exam: it felt like I had completely failed it, not even exaggerating. There was one section where I guessed on a solid 80% of the questions. The other sections were the typical felt good about 20-30%, didn't know 20-30%, shaky guesses on the rest. It almost seemed like, "feeling" wise alone, that I did worse on CK than Step 1. Last night, I had 4 nightmares, each with the same sequence of me opening my score report to see that I had failed. To anyone else who walked out of that exam feeling like you failed, there is hope and trust the masses of people here with that same story. Overall conclusions: - Even if you're scraping by your 3rd year shelves, you can still end up average on CK - At least one pass of UWorld during dedicated is probably necessary and I echo everyone on using UW answer explanations as a primary note-taking resource and actually reviewing those notes extensively leading up to your exam - There are no good high yield books out there and I wouldn't even bother buying Secrets/Dr. HY ... look up the free Divine podcast notes - Nowhere in my study journey was Anki ever utilized ... that might make the difference between an average and a high scorer though because my friends who use it religiously are also all ridiculously high scorers haha - Didn't use OME at all during dedicated and felt it was minimally helpful during the year ... when I needed more information (high yield in particular) on topics that were very faded in my memory I actually would just look it up on Amboss which I found much more helpful (I'm also a very visual learner and reading texts repeatedly gets in my brain more than listening to videos repeatedly would) which leads me to the last point - Trust your own learning style and it's not always do more questions ... I think one of the biggest reasons I did so poorly on Step 1 was actually because I kept hearing from everyone, "DO QUESTIONS>PASSIVE CONTENT REVIEW" even though I'm not even someone who gets tripped up by questions and it's literally just the knowledge/factoids are not in my memory impaired brain ... what's best for me is probably using more time for content review especially the week leading up to the exam. If you're like me, using the last week (or two) before CK to re-read high yield notes as many times as you can might actually be better than cramming a ton of questions in those last few weeks Anyways, hope this was somewhat helpful or at least encouraging to some of y'all out there, especially the below average med students like me hahaha IM ROOTING FOR YOU!!!
2020.09.30 19:27 sonihaoYet another CompLing Master's thread
I've been following this sub for a little while, and it's full of really great information; it's much appreciated. Background: I finished my linguistics BA early this Summer, and I've got my heart set on a job in the field of CompLing. I've been researching all manner of programs both in the US and Europe, and I'm looking for advice. My UG GPA is fairly solid at 3.85 cumulative, but I worry that my performance in quantitative subjects, and lack of CS courses on my transcript might be red flags for an admissions committee (I have an intro to computing Java class, college algebra, and intro to stat class). I also don't have relevant work or research experience (part of my reasons for entering a master's program is to get just that). Nonetheless, I'm sure that CompLing is what I want to do. I'm now studying with stat/prob & data structures Moocs, and going through the NLTK book with Python. I have three of my ling professors who are willing to provide letters of recommendation. I worry that my application won't be competitive enough for some of the programs I'm interested in. I'm super interested in UW CLMS, Arizona's HLT program, Edinburgh Speech & Lang Processing, as well as German Master's at Stuttgart and Saarland, for example. For those admitted to any of these programs, did any of you have similar backgrounds and levels of prep? I'm itching to start studying CompLing formally. Do you think it's worth applying this year, and to just keep preparing up until school start dates to show my seriousness/aptitude, or is it wiser to take some time preparing, and apply the year after? Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks.
2020.09.30 16:13 sapphiretrustStep 1 237 and the humongous rise (lol) to a 238 CK
Hi all, Wanted to do a write-up for all the people who only see 280 write-ups here (-__-) I'm a US-IMG, my OET is scheduled for two weeks from now and I'm hoping to match into IM by next March. Prep Time: 3 months, took my Step 1 in June after a year of prep and I wanted to take CK in time to apply for match. Resources: Mainly UW and Dr. Emma Holliday youtube vids and Divine Intervention Podcasts. I tried the Onlinemeded videos but it wasn't as useful as getting through questions. It wasn't like Step 1 where I depended on BNB to learn the material anew, this was a jump-off Step 1. So honestly, the best prep was Step 1. There were some PBS for the heme/onc q's and I was like yay we'll never be rid of it haha. I would do 1-2 blocks at the beginning of my prep and increased slowly. By the last 2 weeks, I was doing 4-5 blocks because I didn't even think I could finish one round by my test date. I believe the increase from my UWSA 1 and 2 can be attributed to forcing 5and sometimes even 6 blocks of UW. I know that doing 200+ q's is not super practical and I probably missed the finer points on revision, but the sheer amount of questions I was looking at per day helped me to see patterns and focus better during my SA 2. During my jogs/errands/cooking, I would listen to the Emma Holliday lectures and choice Divine Intervention Podcasts. https://www.reddit.com/Step2/comments/h12nyhow_to_use_the_divine_intervention_podcasts_from/ ---This is a great post by the elusive man himself. I thought the risk factors, and the 3rd year medicine shelf review series (ep. 29-32 i think?) were really helpful. Test Day: Slept well the previous night. I took step 1 with a mask because of 'rona so it wasn't a new experience for me. Practice wearing one during your prep days just to see how uncomfortable it is! I had protein bars and chocolate during my breaks. Took a break each section and peed way too often lol. The test itself was hard of course, but after reading so many posts on this subreddit about how crazy vague and insane it is, I was (at least mentally) prepared for the randomness, even if I ended up guessing lmao. There were a couple drug ads, I thought the randy Neill biostats youtube videos helped but because of time constraints/me sucking at these types of q's I think I mainly ended up guessing. I ran out of time on 3/4 blocks where I ended up not having time to review my marked questions. Mostly it feels like a fever dream and I'm glad I never have to take CK again. Post Test: Didn't look up any CK stuff, did the same for Step 1 and that was a great decision lol. I started my ERAS stuff and compiling LOR's so I kept busy and tried not to dwell on what happened. Result: I am pretty happy with this score given that I honestly thought I had failed! I have been up since midnight with fitful bouts of sleep and dreams of me opening the score report(-_-) The score discrepancy between my UWSA 1 and 2 gave me tons and tons of anxiety but I'm pleased that I at least got a point higher than Step 1! I wanted to get my CK score back before applying so the timing was a bit crunched but I'm content with my result. Thank you to this subreddit for helpful advice and tips!! Real deal: 238 (9/12) Step 1: 237 (June 2020) UW%: 58% one pass only Nbme 6: didn't do Nbme 7: 203 (5 wks out) Nbme 8: 204 (4 wks out) New free 120: 64% (2 wks out) UWSA1: 214 (13 days out) UWSA2: 244 (1 wk out) Old free 120: 80% (3 days out)
Theme accompanied description: To attain depth (the quality of being intense or extreme), it takes commitment.
Genres this week: Organic electronic, deep disco house, minimal tech house, organic electronic, jazz fusion, alternative metal, Australian alternative rock, melodic metalcore, new wave pop, alt-rock/pop punk, british jazz pop and indie soul.
The Ⓙ Rebrand playlist is organised into genres (within the Spotify app). If you can't see these labels in your app: go to Settings>DisplayOptions>Show unavailable songs ☑ )
Song choice rationale and track descriptions: Dissociative - Traf: [Genre: organic electronic] This track has been sitting in the Ⓙ Rebrand Archive 2020 since the start of the month now and I think it deserves to be shared. This song ticks some boxes for me in terms of both an uplifting and exciting sound as well as having elements groovy synth to it. As I have listened to a lot of synthwave and organic electronic this track vibes well on both fronts while also pulling in some chill guitar riffs into the mix. It’s just an easy going starter to the playlist this week, but it sets the mood for some faster paced songs to follow. Phill Callings - Aquarius Heaven: [Genres: deep disco house, german house] So, this week I have decided to feature another track by Brian Brewster aka: “Aquarius Heaven” and I’m still “frothing” this vibe. It’s experimental house music with roots in reggae and dancehall featuring a hip-hop singer with colours of the Caribbean in his voice. IMO the other track on this EP (Work That Body) is nowhere near as good. This track is the one I would have featured last week and I’m still loving it; so after mentioning there might be more AH featured, this is the one. I have also set this track as my “current obsession” on GinkoMusic LastFM as well as placed it in Ⓙ Ginko’s Obsessions. What They Say - Maya Jane Coles: [Genres: uk house, deep disco house, minimal tech house, electra, deep house, house, electronica, microhouse] This is straight up one of the most groovy and catchy tracks in the line-up. Hard not to be moved by this one (unless of course you can’t hear or you have a hole in your heart). Now this is the most popular track on Spotify by the artist: Maya Jane Coles, but I have to say it was a hard pick between this and Simple Things which is also on the same album: What They Say EP but I figured, it’s the opening track and it’s the main track on the album. If you dig this sound, I’d encourage you to suss out the rest of the album. There were a lot of tracks I had to choose from in the Maya Jane Coles catalogue, but I’ll be tempted to keep them in the rotations throughout the week. Delta - Solace Remix - Katl June, Solanca: [Genres: progressive house, organic house] This is a Solanca remix of the original track by Katl June. It's another one of those tracks that isn’t really that “exciting” but I think it has its place in providing a good ambient soundscape that promotes productivity and commitment to the task(s) you’re doing. Not much of a feature but a nice chill house track with uplifting vibes that I think still has merit. It actually works well as a bit of a palate cleanser in the playlist. Jorge - Satori Remix - Acid Pauli, Satori: [Genres: organic electronic, ethnotronica, organic house, organic electronic, organic house, microhouse, deep euro house, minimal techno, tech house] Another track that has a phenomenal introduction worth my kudos. This is the soundtrack to the artwork this week, a futuristic world that still functions well, but has some downfalls. It’s some pretty stylish house music if you ask me, but each to their own. Back to the Basics - AW:[Genre: tech-house] So, back in April this year I featured a similar track in Rebrand “Back to Basics” by KVPV, in Ⓙ Rebrand 29/04/20 but I think I like this version better. Not only am I enjoying AW’s very limited and underground discography, but this track has more of the sounds I like in it; drumming, hard tech-house style and some quality mastering. My House - Joe Jackson: [Genres: Jazz fusion, dance rock, art rock, mellow gold, new wave pop, new romantic, pub rock, soft rock] I hate to have to put a Joe Jackson track in Rebrand, but I’ve been digging this one lately and I think he makes some good music. I know I’m mostly going to be alone here, so no offence if this track gets skipped, but I am including quite a lot more nostalgic tracks this week, so it might not be enjoyed by everyone. I love the lyrics "one of these days I'm gonna smash somebody's car and smash the coppers face, as they take me away, but I gotta go home now" - It really captures the feelings a lot of people have when they keep emotions bottled up until one day they just snap... You - Breaking Benjamin: [Genres: alternative metal, post-grunge, nu metal] This song expresses the mistakes the singer has made while living a life of drug abuse and in doing so, took his lover for granted. This song expresses the sorrow and contrition of the singer for setting such a terrible example and making these mistakes. I really enjoy singing this track and I chose it mostly for that reason. It is a track I have always loved. All I Know - Karnivool: [Genres: Australian alternative rock, djent, alternative metal, progressive metal] I have been a fan of Karnivool for many years now and this song is somewhat dear to my heart. I’ve been getting a lot out of this song lately and it’s got some really nice melodies to sing along to. I just love the bridge in this track too (it starts at half way). It's one of the grooviest things you'll hear, featuring off-beat drumming and ambient guitar… gives me goosebumps. This track has been on high rotation the past week. It's a very nice song folks. Louder Voice - Fit For A King: [Genres: melodic Christian metalcore, deathcore, post-screamo] I wanted to feature one track off the album The Path by Fit For A King which was released in full this past week. This song has an acceptable intro, which makes the transition into the genre easier, but the song is pretty full-on both lyrically and musically. It covers the topic of experiencing cognitive dissonance around letting love back into your life while struggling with multiple voices or outlooks on the matter. Somebody’s Watching Me - Single Version - Rockwell: [Genres: new wave pop, dance rock, new romantic, new wave, synthpop, soft rock, disco, europop, mellow gold, motown] There are a few nostalgic tunes in this week’s playlist. This one reminds me of the days when I was first getting into dance music, listening to Ministry of Sound. I can’t imagine there would be too many people who would skip this old banger of a synth track. There’s a reason it was popular and as much as we love hearing new songs, there’s always a place for nostalgia and music is so powerful in delivering it. For anyone interested, the BeatFreakz version of this track is the one featured on Ministry of Sound's: Sessions Three, released in 2006, but I currently like the Rockwell Single version better; BeatFreaks trashed the mastering in their version, but if I want to tap into that true nostalgia, the BeatFreaks version hits the spot. crushcrushcrush - Paramore: [Genres: alt-rock, candy pop, pixie, pop punk, pop emo] Yeah, another early 2000’s tune. I got right into this album again the past week and it was pulling some nostalgic strings for me. This was probably one of my favourite Paramore songs back in the day and I have enjoyed bringing it back this week. Julie Mangos - Tom Misch, Yussef Dayes: [Genres: British jazz pop, indie soul] I really like this quirky little track off the new album: What Kinda Music by Tom Misch (multi-instrumentalist) and Yussef Dayes (drummeproducer). This particular track resonated with me because I like the dynamic chosen to convey a little story. It’s personal, but it’s also really nice to just get a snippet of two friends' lives. The music changes with the perceived emotion of the participants in the conversation recorded. Very exciting shit homies. I didn’t leave this track to last because it’s my least favourite of the set; I positioned it here because it sets me up with such a good mood when I listen to it, I hoped it would end the playlist in a really nice way for everyone. If you enjoy it, I encourage you to bang on the rest of the album. Also featured in Ⓙ Album of the week until next Wednesday. It’s a great, ambient album; suggested to me by a close friend and I rate this experimental style highly. The drumming in this album is quite phenomenal really, groovy shit. It’s a good, chill listen... Check it out.

Hello, since the release of iOS 14 and SwiftUI 2 it's possible to use the DatePicker as a modal View (Example). My question is how i can customize the inline button on which the user taps to show the date selection. I want to show a simple calendar icon instead. Thanks in advance
2020.09.29 09:45 plorgus_schlorpusThe idea that having a weird or different personality is a better way to live life is fucking bullshit
People that claim to be weird or different are all fucking frauds because they’ll still fit into a certain clique at school that consists of 1:1 carbon copies of the same person. Not being in the popular group isn’t being weird or different, being popular isn’t normal either it’s just a fucking well known group of people at school that is more sociable than the rest of the groups. As someone that is actually different I can vouch for myself and say this life is hell. I desperately try to find someone, literally anyone that has a similar personality to mine but it just does not exist. There is no clique for me at school, even the outcasts don’t like me because again my personality is so far out there that there is no possible way to get along with me. I fucking hate the emo kids that say “UwU I’m so quirky and weird” Yet they go to school and sit with their 20 emo friends that are literal carbon 1:1 copies down to their atoms and then they go on dates with other emo people that also happen to be “weird and quirky.” despite being 1 of the other millions of people exactly like them. I lay in bed every night praying I die in my sleep and I wrap cords around my neck and tie them to up high hoping I fall off the bed and snap my neck because of the way my life has gone. I get to look in the mirror every day and know that there’s almost no chance I will find a girl that is someone like me, that I can get along with and love. I hate myself for being so hopeful when I was young that my weird self could maybe do something big someday, if I could go back and find a way to change myself I would. Don’t be different, assimilate into a group of people.

The class at CC A was at the same time as her class. So, I took it at CC B. What happy that I did know in hindsight:
Organizing each class in google calendar so I would know what day we were learning what and when the exams were and the HW were. Also, I moved the due dates back 4-5 days so I would be ahead.
Going through the course content 2 weeks before class started. Therefore, I had been exposed to everything we would be learning.

Hello Everyone, I have browsed this Reddit during the entirety of my Pre-Med career and I have seen some people give some great advice. Now, I think I need some help from anyone on this forum. I tested on 6/28/2020 after two reschedules and got a 509 (132/122/129/126). While I know my C/P and B/B scores were great, I struggled greatly with CARS and P/S. On my test day, I had some technical difficulties with my test that made CARS a drag. In the months leading up to my test, I finished the entirety of UW and got around 72% correct across all sections. My peak scores were 131/125/128/128. I was comfortable with both CARS and P/S as I made great improvements in the months leading. However, that does not matter now. After I received my score, I was kind of lost on what to do. I was not ready to re-test at the time. Because of the pandemic, I had to reschedule from my initial March 27th test date. I had been studying for months, so I was burned out by then. I still have applied and received secondaries from all the schools I applied to except one. So far in the cycle, I have had one interview at Texas A&M. However, I have no heard from another school since then. From what I have heard, I know balance is important in an MCAT score breakdown. I know getting below a 125 in a section makes it difficult for acceptance. I wanted to see if anyone has any advice for me or have been in a similar situation and what they did. I truly appreciate any advice because I know everyone on this subreddit is just like me, trying to get into medical school. I have been on the fence about re-studying for the MCAT again. I have thought about improving CARS and P/S and take my test again in April just in case I get accepted into a school before the next cycle started. I thought it was best to reach out for help here before I made any decisions. Thanks everyone. Additional Info. I am in Texas and I graduated in 2020 with a BS in engineering and a 3.9 cGPA and a 3.85 sGPA. I have 200+ hours of research, 40+ hours of volunteering, and 90+ hours of shadowing.

Registration cards and insert card are intact. Disc is near-mint, I don't see any scratches on it. Some very minor shelf wear on the longbox case (mostly some light scuffing), but it's intact with no real damage that I can see. Overall this game is in excellent condition, displays very nicely. Probably the best you'll get, short of finding one still sealed.

PS Vita Assassin's Creed III Liberation Limited Edition Bundle
Complete (big box, inner cardboard box, instruction booklet, quick start guides, insert card, game and memory card tray, power cable, AR card packet, system). I bought this new when it first came out solely to play Persona 4 Golden, and didn't log very much time with this system (maybe about 20 or 30 hours at the most). The screen has had a protector on it to protect from scratches (which I've since removed and discarded to take photos). It's spent most of its life in a soft padded carrying case (included) and hasn't seen any play whatsoever in the last several years. Cosmetically, the system is in excellent condition. I never played the included game at all, and most of the inserts were left in the box (the AR cards are still sealed). While testing it, the only flaw I noticed is the touchscreen is sometimes too sensitive and sometimes not sensitive enough, but I don't know if that's common with the Vita or not, so I'm offering this one as is.
Complete (insert, manuals, inner cardboard tray, and box). Box is in very good condition (minor crease on front right corner, near "3"). Cart is in very good condition (some very minor scratches on back). RetroProtection box protector included.

2020.09.26 14:42 LordChozoHindsight is 2020: A Sincere Thank You
from u/LordChozo, 2020 Listen to it here! It’s been a long, long time, hasn’t it? This has certainly been a trip for me and I hope for all of you as well. Now that we’ve reached the final week of this massive endeavor, I wanted to take the time to acknowledge and thank you all for taking this journey alongside me for the past nine months. I originally planned to post something like this at the conclusion of that journey, but it occurred to me that the comments of the #1 song might be overwhelmed with full project retrospectives, and I wanted to give the music itself its day of discussion. So here I am, one week from the end, looking back over everything to date. So much has changed in the world and in my life since I began this countdown. One morning I said “Get ‘Em Out by Friday” was my 172nd favorite Genesis song and spent that afternoon in the hospital watching my wife give birth to our second son, even as my phone repeatedly buzzed with aggrieved comments regarding my taste in music. That son is now cruising around the living room furniture and spends his spare time attempting to steal my cell phone because he thinks that’s the funniest thing in the world. That is, of course, when he’s not trying to grab fistfuls of cat; being a human feline barrier is but one of the many hats I wear in this family. It seems that I can scarcely remember life without him in it, yet Hindsight is a month older still. Was there a time I wasn't doing this every day? It's hard to imagine. COVID-19 has also changed all our lives. I was blessed enough to not be among the many who lost their jobs in the pandemic, but I did go from full office environment to fully working-from-home. That brought both challenges as well as opportunities, but my overall point is that my life today looks nothing like it did on January 1st, when I announced to Genesis my intent to rank one song per weekday for the entire Genesis catalog. I am proud that I’ve been able to live up to that commitment, and I have been extraordinarily moved by the comments I’ve received along the way expressing that what started out as a fun, throwaway exercise has had a meaningful positive impact in people’s lives. It’s utterly humbling. It’s been a surreal experience for me. I’ve been made into a meme (fewer grey hairs next time would be appreciated, u/naminanu23). I’ve been the subject of tasteful, well-conceived parody. Ironically the score on that hilarious post from u/BluetheSquid_ is higher than anything I’ve garnered myself with these actual Hindsight posts, which reminds me a little bit of this, but it was well deserved. There’s been the very strange as well. One user of questionable mental stability created an imposter account of me and used it to have “me” post hateful and/or pornographic content. There’s currently a chat server dedicated specifically to dissing me, and some of its members obsessively hunt down every post or comment I make here just to downvote it. In a bizarre but very real sort of way this makes these people my most loyal fans, so a special thanks to them for reminding me every day that what I’m doing is reaching people. I’ve been asked several times now if I have plans for all of this stuff after the series concludes, and the answer is honestly “I don’t know.” I’ve been so focused on getting these things written and put out there, and that alone has been a mammoth task. I haven’t been meticulously tracking or anything, but this project has taken me easily hundreds of hours to put together, and very likely upward past a thousand. I haven’t really sat down and taken the time to figure out what happens next, although it’s been made clear to me more than once that something ought to happen next. For the short term, here’s what you can expect from me. Hindsight will conclude on Friday, October 2nd with the post for my personal favorite Genesis song. The next day, I’ll post the final recap list with links for the entries from 50-1. Combined with the other interlinked numerical recaps, that will gather the entire countdown into one place so it can be reviewed in order for posterity. In addition, because I know most people might want to search for the post on a specific song rather than “what was #89 again?”, I’ll be creating lists of the Hindsight project in two additional forms: one with the songs organized alphabetically, and one with them organized chronologically by release. So as to not clog the sub, I’ll be posting these to my user profile page instead. Followers should be able to see these in their feeds, but anyone will be able to click into my Reddit profile and find them. Any or all of these lists can be saved off and/or bookmarked if anyone wants to revisit this countdown on this platform in the future. Beyond that...I’m just looking forward to some time off. This has been a project of passion for me; I’ve thoroughly enjoyed creating all this content and there’s a lot of it that I’m proud of. But it has been work: days and often nights spent in front of a computer screen, trying to meet the deadlines I set for myself before this scope ballooned out of hand. I’m ready to exhale a bit and allow myself to finally relax for the first time in three quarters of a year. And then, who knows? I’ll reassess once I feel rejuvenated and see what the next steps are. In the meantime I’ll still be here on Genesis, commenting away, enjoying all the content everyone else brings to the table. This is a great community, and I’m very happy to be a part of it. So once again, thank you all for all the time you’ve given me this year. This project exists for you and because of you. I hope it’s been as worthwhile for you as it has been for me. See you next week; the best is yet to come. Let’s hear it from you! One user suggested I should do an AMA-type thing after this, but I think that seems a bit like self-important overkill, especially as we’ve all been engaging daily on the individual threads along the way. But if anyone does have any general, specific, or totally random questions they want to ask, by all means don’t be shy. I’m happy to answer whatever I can.
2020.09.25 01:56 shoan8UW and WSU start football on Nov. 6 with no fans
Pac-12 fall football season is revived with seven-game schedule starting Nov. 6 After adopting a conference-only fall football season on July 31, then postponing it altogether less than two weeks later, the Pac-12's CEO group voted on Thursday for a seven-game season that will start on Nov. 6 and last until Dec. 18, according to a report. https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/uw-husky-football/report-pac-12-fall-football-season-is-revived-with-seven-game-schedule-starting-nov-6/ After adopting a conference-only fall football season on July 31, then postponing it altogether less than two weeks later, the Pac-12’s CEO group voted unanimously on Thursday for a seven-game season that will start on Nov. 6 and last until Dec. 18. All Pac-12 teams who do not advance to the conference title game will play a different cross-division opponent the same weekend. Aside from football, the Pac-12 will also resume its basketball and winter sports seasons. Pac-12 men's and women's basketball will begin on Nov. 25, consistent with the NCAA's allotted start date, and other winter sports may commence alongside their determined NCAA start date as well. Fans will not be allowed at any sporting events taking place on Pac-12 campuses this fall, a release stated. That decision “will be revisited based upon health and safety considerations in January 2021.” ...
2020.09.24 20:46 fishwithlegsNormal Person Step 2 CK experience (Score 232)
Hey ladies and gents I wanted to take a little bit of time to talk about my experience with step 2 ck. This whole thing has been a very wild ride. First off I am a US-IMG. I am an average to below average scorer. On Step 1 I scored a 223 and wanted to improve on that score. Following Step 1 I studied for each shelf exam using Uworld and OME (for IM I also used the step up to medicine book a bit). The pandemic really threw my initial study plan for a loop because one of my shelf exams kept getting postponed. In hindsight I should have started more comprehensive studying then but I did not. I completed my IM sub-I in July and started dedicated study at the beginning of August. I should note that I have struggled with severe anxiety and some depression throughout med school but it became much worse during dedicated and my first simulation sent me spiraling. I had to talk to my doctor and start medication because I wasn't sleeping or eating and couldn't even focus. I still managed to get around 2k questions done on my UW second pass. I am going to layout my simulations and when I was taking them. I want to note that I felt my knowledge was not accurately reflected in many of these scores because of my mental state at the time and the physical tole it was taking. *NBME 6- score 183 - ~7-8 weeks out (before dedicated study) *NBME 7- score 200 - ~5 weeks out (near beginning of dedicated) *Kaplan simulation 1- score 61% - ~4 weeks out *NBME 8- score 203- ~3 weeks out *UWS 1- score 211 ~ 2 weeks out At this point I pushed my exam back by one week because I was struggling to maintain composure. *Kaplan simulation 2- score 69% - ~2 weeks out from new test date (Although this did not give a score prediction I felt confident coming out of the exam and felt like my level of fatigue was manageable) *UWS 2- score 234 (~65%) - ~5 days out (I was finally in a better headspace and was more confident in myself when taking the exam). *Step 2 CK- score 232 on Sep. 9th. I wrote this because I know there are probably a lot of people that come to this subreddit and other forums and only see the crazy scores that people post. I am a normal guy that was struggling with the stress and anxiety of taking this exam. The first thing I recommend is to get help if you are struggling mentally like me. The second thing is be confident in yourself because it makes such a huge difference when taking an exam. I absolutely hate the NBME exams because they are just so inaccurate for me, i'm not really sure why but they always have been. On step 1 they underpredicted by 15-20 points from the real thing. Also I don't find many people talking about the kaplan exams but I found them very helpful for training stamina and the structure of the questions felt similar to the real thing. UWorld is by far the most accurate regarding content and simulations but Kaplan question structure felt accurate as well (content not as much). Kaplan included far more of the interactive audio questions that I found on step. I know my score is nothing amazing to most of you but I am happy that I improved from step 1 and overcame some serious mental hurdles. I hope that you guys can at the very least feel encouraged that hope is not lost if you perform badly on one or more of your simulations. Edit: I forgot to add that I was averaging around 69% on my uworld blocks across ~2k questions on my second pass. I was doing between 120-160 uworld questions per day when I wasn't taking or reviewing a simulation exam. I rewatched all of the OME videos and did the Uworld biostats review. The score predictor excel sheet was also very accurate, within 3 points.
2020.09.24 20:01 NordicSealHow to do Math Research at UW-Madison?
Hi, everyone. Title. I'm currently in MATH 522 and I'm thinking about the possibility of going to grad school for math. I couldn't really find any up-to-date information on math.wisc.edu about undergrads doing research in the department. The only thing I've found were seminar times which I plan on going to this semester and seeing which fields I'm interested in (geometry and topology seem pretty cool). For anyone who has done research/currently doing research in the math department, how do you go about getting started? Is it just as simple as asking a professor if he/she would be willing to have you join their research? UW-Madison has a pretty high-ranking math department so I'm pretty sure there should be at least a few opportunities for undergrads to do research. I'm not really sure how to do this so please excuse my dumb questions lol. Thanks!
2020.09.23 23:11 dalvzBuyers asked and received 5 extensions, now saying they can't close. What are our options?
We've had a house for sale since late April and the buyers have continuously asked for extensions. We've given them an extension every single time. I believe the underwriter has asked them for a lot of things and the buyers for the most part were able to provide them what they needed. This last extension they asked for, on the week we were supposed to close, was supposedly due to a mistake in their perceived monthly HOA cost. The actual cost was $100 more than they (the lender) believed it would be, and because of this the underwriter wanted the buyers to pay down $10000 of their car loan and they would give the buyer an $8000 credit in closing costs. The buyers accepted and signed the purchase agreement addendum for the extension, we did as well. Today our agent sent us an email of her conversation with the buyer's agent. The message is from their agent to ours, as follows:
By the time Buyer agreed to pay the $10K car loan she wasn't aware of the car value loss she was facing. Therefore right away on Saturday morning Buyer got a car price report and she found out she was looking at a $4K loss. Over the weekend Buyer asked Lender for the other option which was paying 10% down. If Buyer pays 10% down she will be left with no money for closing costs even with the discount. We've taken this long trying to get the money for closing cost in the form of a personal loan but no luck. Unless Seller or we are willing on taking the hit, there's nothing we can do. I haven't sent you a cancelation because I don't have a denial letter yet. This $10K Car Loan or 10% Down came up after our 5% Loan Commitment. If Seller wants compensation, by all means, but the buyer did her best. Please advise.
So basically this deal is not going to go through after 5 months of us granting extensions. The situation for us is complicated because another house has been purchased (although financially we should be okay to cover this cost), and we made travel arrangements which are already paid for (moving abroad). We've sold everything in the house and were basically just waiting for it to close, but now it looks like we will have to cancel the flights and pay additional mortgage + HOA until the house sells, not to mention we have to put it back on the market. Are we entitled to any compensation or recourse? The buyers put $5k earnest money in escrow. We feel bad for the buyers, but we're also in a very shitty position here. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks. Edit: this is the part in the contract regarding financing, if anyone wants to help me interpret it. https://imgur.com/a/YQMAgUW what i find confusing is that it says the buyer must let us know by the Loan Approval Date that they cannot obtain financing, otherwise the contract continues as if they did obtain financing. The last extension we granted them makes our closing date this Friday, which they won't be able to make.contract states they must let us know "30 days after effective date (loan approval period)" Edit 2: the last extension we signed on the 18th of sept, however, the addendum states that the closing date was extended until the 25th. All extensions say the ONLY following:
1.- Both parties agree to extend the closing date until on or before September 25, 2020.2.- All OTHER TERMS & CONDITIONS REMAIN THE SAME
also as i understand it, my agent says that they had a loan approval with contingencies, one of which was to pay down the loan, which they agreed to. because of that, we granted the extension (to close, not to obtain new financing) their decision to not pay down the loan now should not (in my opinion) change that we granted the extension based on their decision to pay down the loan. Edit 3: Below is the email from buyer agent asking for this final extension, which we granted. This email was received PRIOR to extension shown in Edit 2 above, and email received shown in Edit 1 above:
Dear SELLER AGENT Per our conversation please find attach updated loan commitment for BUYER. The only outstanding condition is us fixing Debt to Income Ratio which went above 50% due to correct HOA fee of $336 which we had at $251. I made some changes which we are able to fix this dti. Below is the email I sent borrower stating she needs to payoff auto for $10k but we are reducing her closing cost fees by $8k to help her compensate for this. I apologize for this inconvenience as our goal is to close this transaction by next week. We are not asking for any contribution from any parties as lender took the hit and gave borrower a credit. We are just asking for an extension please so we can close this chapter. Please relay this message to the seller and provide us with a closing extension good through September 18, 2020. My borrower is willing to make payment of auto today and would hate for her to dish out $10k and not close on her home.
The only reason we granted it was to give her time to pay the loan down and close, however they chose to not pay down the loan.
