First time poster!

I'm a US-MSII and will be taking the boards in June with many of you I'm sure. In the Allopathic Medical school thread, there is a "sticky" section with good websites for medical students. I was wondering if this section could do the same with a "USMLE Step 1 Schedules" sticky. Thousands of users post their 230+ scores on this forum. Like many other students, I would love to know what their schedule was like to obtain their scores? Thanks!

Our school gave us a maximum of 8 weeks to study for step 1. I started studying on May 1 of this year, and took step 1 on June 18. Attached is my schedule for my first run-through of the material, which took me all of May. I spent June 1-17 doing a second run-through of the material. My score was a 257/99.View attachment step 1 study schedule.pdf

Spartan, what is your class standing? It would help to know if you are a genius who is at the top 10% or an average Joe in the middle if you would mind telling us.

Spartan, either come back with your whitecoat, or on it.

I don't know my exact class rank but I've earned honors in all my course work and clerkships up to this point, so I would guess I'm at least in the top 5% of my class.

I'm surprised that I can't find more sample step 1 study schedules on this site. I did a search but couldn't find anything. There must be a thread that I'm missing. Can anybody post a link?

Here's the schedule I used. In addition, I spent a couple of days on biochem during spring break a month before my dedicated time. Didn't do any step 1-specific studying during the year, but use RR Path heavily during 2nd year. Was one of the top students in my class and scored 270 on step 1.

How long would you spend on the 40-60 pages you would read at 1 pm?

I suppose everyone posts their schedules as part of their exam experience? maybe thats why there was no separate thread initiated.
