Thanks for everyone's feedback above. Slightly ashamed but just what I was looking for, a kick in my ass for the coming months. In response to the above:
I did maybe 100-150 questions per MBE subject over the course of studying, depending on how well I was doing. I took about 3 practice MBE sessions and did OK in them, maybe 65%. Now I see that I will have to practice a lot more if 3,000 is "typical." Definitely lots of leftover questions to play with this time. At least I get immediate feedback unlike the written portion, but I still need to do well on the written since it's 2/3 of my grade.
What does this mean? Is this for MBE or essays? Or the approach to studying?

I have made my own outlines, which are roughly 20 pages for most subjects, through the course of studying. I did not try to memorize ALL the rules, just the big ones. For all else, I got the idea rather than memorizing the rules verbatim. Kaplan also had short rule outlines, which I didn't memorize unless I needed to (multiple elements, big important ones). The prep companies don't say you need to know the rules verbatim; is this wrong? I just really
As mentioned, I assumed the PTs would be easy as always. Expected at least 65 if not 70 based on the feedback I got over the summer. So I only did maybe 3-4 PTs total as practice and thought even that was overkill. Not enough?
