    or will the NBOME not allow it?

    I would rather get this over with as a fourth year than having hanging over my head like a rain cloud for two years.

    No.

    Eligibility Criteria for COMLEX 3 (from COMLEX Bulletin of Information)

    "1. Must have passed the COMLEX-USA Level 1, COMLEX-USA Level 2-CE and Level 2-PE examinations as determined by the NBOME.

    2. Must have graduated from a osteopathic medical school accredited by the AOA COCA with an earned D.O. degree as confirmed by the college/school of matriculation.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, candidates who graduated from a college of osteopathic medicine accredited by the AOA COCA prior to January 1, 2005 and are exempt from the requirement of passing COMLEX-USA Level 2-PE, provided they have successfully completed COMLEX-USA Level 2-CE before June 30, 2005."

    I feel the same way. I just want to knock it out now because I'm just getting dumber as time marches on. :D
