Thumbs Up

If you have already applied for Step1 and are registered, then answer yes to that.
The USMLE/ECFMG ID is the same and you have to put that in the application ID number for CS application.

I am an IMG and I answered YES to it. Nothing odd happened, the application went through and I got registered on time.

I did the same, nothin happened, but then i called ECFMG just to confirm and they said that that i have to change that. Yes is for amg as we apply to ECFMG and not to NBME, call them to fix your error.
