    A thread to celebrate the end of second year and therefore, the end of the formal classroom education as we know it. I have my Path final on Friday then I coast into Step 1. Anybody else?

    hahhaha "coast into step one". i agree with the above poster. from what i see of the second years (which isn't much outside the library)...step one ain't no square dance, friend. more like walking the plank rather than floating...or coasting or whatever.

    Well... I "coast" in the sense that it is my only obligation, though one I do take seriously.

    Two more weeks here. Thanks to my school's inability to schedule well. Congratulations to those about to start Step 1 studying, I'll be joining you shortly.

    At Pitt, our second years are already third years...they were done with classes I think around the end of February/beginning of March.

    Are there other schools that end second year so early?

    I have one more week then an OSCE exam that Saturday. Follow that puppy up with three lab finals (neuro, anatomy, histo) on Thursday. Then we have 6 exams in 3 days on the following Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

    So, all said and done, two weeks next Wednesday and by far the most painful chapter of all of this will be over. Of course, that assumes that i'll pass, which that little voice inside my head keeps telling me is impossible. So so so worried at this pt...sigh...

    Good on ya'll who are done already! Can't wait for that sweet sweet day.

    Two weeks and I'm done with year one...sweet.

    Just for my own benefit, are you actually a third year before or after you take Step I? Is it an official or unofficial requirement?
