I finally got my act together and sent in my application to take Step 1.
Now for the really difficult part: deciding where I want to take it (New York or my hometown) and deciding WHEN I want to take it. I’m thinking mid-June, so as to give myself a couple of weeks off before third year starts and I disappear into the hospital forever ‘n’ ever.
Basically, I am the most indecisive medical student in the world. I can’t even pick a place to study for my pulm exam on Monday; how’m I going to make it through Boards? Answer: lots of coffee. And Richard Curtis movies. And more coffee. My organic lab professor in college taught us how to free-base caffeine (and sundry other alkaloids). Who knew orgo lab might come in useful some day?
