Registration Not sure about "month" on clerkship part of usmle 1 application.

HI guys, in the clerkship part of the usmle application, I tried to put the months as accuarately as I can for the month of certain rotations. I asked a wife of a medical doctor, whether that could hamper my licensure, she said it could because they check very deeply.

I am scared that since I did I can only guarantee accuracy to withing (+/-) 3-4 weeks of a rotation that I will have problems with the ecfmg and ultimately licensure. I filled out my usmle 1 applcation in a hurry, which means filling out the ecfmg application as part of it (march 2012), but I tried to do it accurately.

Waht I want to knwo is how accurate do I have to be and how much "anal probing" the ecfmg will do?

I already submitted my usmle 1 application, with a prayer , because I wanted form 183/186 very badly, and it won't let you get to it until you put everything down and it will take at least a week to get everythign form teh registrar.

When I applied for my step 2 CK, I had to fill out the clerkship dates as well. But I only filled them out semi-precisely (e.g. to the months)

My application was accepted.

Hope this helps
