Default Just leave it

If you don't complete your online application within 14 days, it will automatically be cancelled (there's no harmful consequences in that).

Then you can apply again in August when the 2012 eligibility becomes available.

Default Its august and I still can't apply for 2012

Hi,

I am trying to apply for 2012 step 1 exam but I noticed the eligibility period is only till dec 2011.. So its Aug 11 and they still have not opened 2012 dates!!.. This is really frustrating since I have to send all my forms in to get verified, and I will not get access to form 186 till after I pay for exam.. So basically I have to wait for 2012 dates to open up before I can send all my forms to ECFMG , and I know that it takes time to get all your documents verified by your med school (I am IMG).. I just hope they open up the 2012 dates soon!!
