USMLE Step 1 and COMLEX Level 1 are officially complete!!!!! It seriously feels so good to finally be finished with the first parts of my medical board exams. I won't know my scores for about three weeks, but right now I am just celebrating the fact that I crossed yet another big milestone on my journey to becoming a physician. Taking two 8-hour exams in less than a week's time span was a truly rough experience, and I am just happy to be done!

They say that everyone feels like they failed coming out of the exams, but I honestly am not sure how to feel. Walking out of the USMLE, I know that I had marked maybe 50% of the exam which is probably a really bad sign, but I have no way to gauge how I performed because even after looking up some things I wasn't sure about, I'm still confused lol. As for the COMLEX, I marked a huge amount of the exam as well (if I don't know an answer 100%, I mark it), but for some reason I just feel better about it. Right now, I'm just praying that I passed both exams and that the silly mistakes I usually tend to make were minimal.
But anyway, be on the lookout for a few board exam posts. I know everyone studies differently, so take everything I say with a grain of salt, but hopefully it will help some of you out. And if I performed horribly on the exams (God forbid), then hopefully it will show you all what not to do lol. Either way, I look forward to sharing my experiences with you all, but right now I'm going to celebrate!
