So lets hear 'em..do you have any test rituals that you do on the day of or the day before an exam. I for one have a "Test Outfit" -- its nothing special just comfortable jeans, a t-shirt a friend of mine from anoter med school gave me w. his shool's name on it b4 I started med school, and a fleece in case its cold. Worn the same outfit to every songle med school exam for the 1st 2 years. Got kinda tough this past week b/c I had 3 shelves in 3 days but I went home and changed after the shelf so the shirt wouldnt get too dirty...i know.. a lil disgusting but hey I wasn't about to do laundry w. a shelf on the following day. I think I'm gonna retire the otufit right after Step 1 in 5 weeks. Noticed a lot of other people in my class wearing the same sweatshirt or to every exam (one guy switched to a new shirt after he failed an exam). Also used the same mechanical pencil for all y exams in the 1st 2 yrs. Retired that puppy today after my last shelf I know it sounds a little crazy and I can't explain why I do it. I guess it's worked for me so far and "if it ain't broke don't fix it" Other stories I've heard is people absolutelly having to get a massage the day before an exam. One guy got pretty infuriated when the massage parlor told him they were booked-up for shelf week. Had to call a girl friend of his to come help him out. Can't think of many others right now but I know they're out there...lets hear them.
