    Step 1 in 3 days, scoring low on NBMEs and UWSA1

    So I'm scheduled to take the exam on Thursday, but with all my NBMEs being in the 180s/190s and having scored 200 on UWSA1 yesterday, I feel like I will inevitably need to push back my exam.

    Need help: Risk failing Step 1 or graduate late?
