I have scheduled the USMLE for June 15th...one week after completion of COMLEX. I will take two days off and use the rest to hit hard some topics that I feel are underrepresented on COMLEX (behavioral, etc). ANy longer and I would forget things, I think.

I am studying for both at the same time, by studying USMLE review books and Savarese's OMT book(you will notice that there are not any/many COMLEX review books out there, for good reason...the material should be the same)

I have decided to schedule USMLE on 6/19. This allows 9 days between the exams. I plan on using this time to review as follows:

Day 1 - Path
Day 2 - Path
Day 3 - Phys
Day 4 - Pharm
DAy 5 - Micro/Immuno
Day 6 - BioChem
Day 7 - Behavioral/Stats
Day 8 - Anatomy/Histo/Embryo
Day 9 - General review/Relax

I am a little worried about forgetting some of the information that I studied for COMLEX, but hopefully these 1-day reviews will be enough to refresh the material.
