Dear God:

USMLE Step 2: Clinical Knowledge. 8 blocks of 50 questions each, one hour maximum per block, one hour for lunch and breaks. Step 1 took me from 0810 to 1530. All the objective evidence (look at all the high passes and extremely good test scores I've gotten) suggests I know my stuff. But I'm terrified.

I've been here before.
I've studied. I've tried. I've finally, with a lot of work and a lot of prayer, got this concentration thing down.
Today is the exam that determines the direction of my life. I have to pass it to continue in school, to keep my scholarships from defaulting, to be allowed to work in the position I so desperately want.
I just have to pass.

I've studied, I have. I've tried. All I need now is a little bit of help.
Help me to remember the things I've worked so hard at learning. Help me not to lose my cool. Help me to dredge from the forgotten corners of my mind the facts that have enabled me to pass everything thus far.

And dear God...help me to make it through.

8:30 AM. IPFW, Kettler Hall. Confirmed. Bag packed. No notecards this time, just my review books in the bag for lunchtime scanning.
AMDG:
Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam, for the greater glory of God.
