Arrived 0810, after wandering around the student centre, forgetting that it wasn't Kettler. Welcome staff were friendly and smiling. It was as good a welcome as I could have expected.
Had trouble with the dry-erase markers; I went through at least 6.
1200: Broke for lunch after 4 sections.
1530: Finished exam and exited.
It was rough, no denying that. There were 2 moderately easy blocks, 2 extremely tough blocks, and 3 blocks in the middle. It jumped around, so the second-to-last block was the second-easiest; the last was hard.
Quotient of Things I'd Never Seen: low.
Quotient of "oh, shit, I don't remember that": moderate.
Best estimate: I would say probably better than half of the questions, I knew the answer to with an 80-95% certainty. Of the remainder, I can anticipate getting half of them right if I was guessing at all accurately. That would pass me. That would be really nice.
I'll tell you all as soon as I know. But it's over with; I'm done. IUSM has a 95% pass rate. Our centre has almos 100%. I should be fine. No more worries, no more studying.
Although Barth did mention that my doc I'll be working with did a fellowship in diabetes, so I should probably brush up on it. Hmm.
