    NBMEs: One per week.

    Morning/early afternoon: 4 randomized blocks of UW.
    Afternoon: 1-2 chapters of Pathoma (aim for 2 full passes before your exam). If you haven't done pathoma yet, get it.
    Evening: First Aid.

    This should take you to your test date.

    According to what schedule? There's no such thing as "finished." If you're able to do everything on my list, you might finish in 6 hours, and it might take 12. Everyone works at a different pace.
