I am not trying to be negative here, but I wouldn't put too much stock into study partners. I know that it is has been preached countless times and is politically correct, but I know so many people who have gotten screwed with the study buddy method that I have lost count.
In the end, you are better off studying alone. The power of self-reliance is invaluable. Ask for help from instructors or "paid" tutors, but I would not look too hard for a study partner for the boards.
