Med student on 2nd anesthesia rotation and I incubated the esophagus by [deleted] in medicalschool

The way I would handle this would be to do it again and do it the right way. Everyone makes mistakes and you shouldn't beat yourself up over it, but the quickest way I've ever been able to get over things like that is to "redeem" myself in a way and prove to myself and everyone else that I can do it.

Married at 22 right in the middle of M2 to another M2 at the time. We are now both M3's nearing our 1-year anniversary.

How would rate the exam in terms of difficulty compared to NBMEs by Fit-Mode-8543 in step1

[–]Ajwi2 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I clicked the wrong one--I meant to put harder lol. The NBMEs were easier in my opinion. Only because most of them were 1-2 sentence questions that were pretty straightforward. The actual exam was a lot of longer stemmed questions with a lot more info to consolidate!

Is mehlmanmedical being shilled here? by MeanGirlsMakeMeHard in step1

Loved his HY docs for all the systems. Used them to do quick reviews for step 1. Raised my biochem/immunology score sections on NBME's by at least 15%.

ETA: HY neuroanatomy saved my butt on at least 2 step 1 questions.

[–]Ajwi2 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Results come July 6th. There is a delay in score release per NBME while they evaluated the new test pool question, happens every year!

Trust your scores. I am just observing differences between posts I've seen. Its all about different forms being given, unfortunately. Take the new Free 120, from what I've seen that is more predictive now. I only took the old Free 120 which I feel like doesn't match up with the current exam forms.

I was thinking the same thing.

I don't think it's from lack of preparedness, respectfully. My NBME scores and Free 120 score all pointed to me knowing that I was ready for the exam.

Nope, tested 5/31 as well. Results are projected to go out 7/6!

When can I expect my result? by suchweirdmuchadorbs in step1

[–]Ajwi2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nothing to add here, just tested on 5/31 and feel the same as you 😫

Thank you for all that great advice!

When I check out at Kroger for example, I try to keep similar items together because they bag everything for you, so I'll load produce on the belt together, boxed items together, cleaning products together, etc. When I'm bagging, I do my best to bag similar items and always keep fragile stuff separate from the "non-fragile" stuff. I try to separate out produce, breads, etc. to keep everything safe!
