Hey, good for your oral exam. I think you made a good choice with waiting to fly. When it comes to check rides, its always better to play it safe.
I just had my first solo in the T-34 Turbomentor yesterday....its funny, my first check ride in a cessna was tough I thought, now after flying in Flight School now, check rides arnt so bad. I hope you dont get nervous like I did on my first check ride....I was such a wreck, that when we were comming up short on a final approach, my instructor asked me if I would try to stretch the glide if i had a engine failure and I said yes!!!!! Totaly failed me on that. Luckly yesterday's checkride, I was much better prepared and less nervous.
Good luck once you get up in the air man, and if you did well with the oral part on the ground, that always helps you out when you get in the air. Im sure you will do just fine.
