So I took Step 1 on June 14 and have been quite happily trying to forget it ever happened.... July 17 is soon enough if you ask me.

In my mailbox today: a big envelope, return address NBME. YIKES I just about puked right there at the mailbox. Turns out it was a survey to assess my views on my testing site. Geez. Fortunately there was cold beer in the fridge. I haven't felt so sick looking at a piece of mail since I got my "thin envelope" waitlist letters way back when. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

Figured I'd share this to spare someone else chest pain......

Yeah, I just heard about that thick envelope deal today from one of my classmates. Don't they realize what kind of stress we are under? My classmate took 3 hrs to open his letter before finding out that his score wasn't even in it. I'm glad that he told me about it, I want to get my score but having to "open" my score twice would be too much for my heart too.

Same thing happened to me this afternoon. But I took mine on June 20, so I was pretty sure it couldn't be my scores yet. Nevertheless, my heart was pounding by the time I got up to room and could rip it open. I was a little disappointed to see the survey, but relieved at the same time :D I don't want to know yet!

Your Dean's office gets your scores about a week or two before you do. They should have them today, if you took early June (they're released on Wednesday).

The "real" report is a flimsy piece of paper folded over on itself. Yet, when I got the same survey last year, I took pause, and thought maybe they'd mailed the scores accidentally.

Anyway, the real thing isn't very dramatic.
