    That's an option? you can just ignore your score? I can't imagine who'd want to do this. Not knowing how I did is driving me mad, and i'm only two days out from my exam. i keep thiniking of questions I missed, and my one super rough block (number 5) where I was forced to mark three answers randomly at the end because I ran out of time.

    Is there any hope of getting our scores back earlier than July 16th? I talked to some people that took the test in April and got their scores back within 3 weeks.

    There's always hope but it's not very likely, the people who took their exams in April had the older format and thus didn't fall under the extended evaluation period.

    It's best to check your score sooner rather than later, just so you can prepare a gameplan for how to proceed.

    The NBME website says nobody (not even steps 2 and 3, I'm assuming) gets their scores the week of July 2, I'm assuming b/c of the 4th of July holiday. So even with a miraculous early release (don't count on it), the earliest we'd see our scores is the 9th.

    So really, what's 2 more weeks? I've been waiting 5 already.
