Default Everybody is eligible

Anybody is eligible to participate in ERAS as long as they have an ECFMG ID.
To pass Step 1 in August gives good chance.
But to maximimize your chances you need to be ECFMG certified before September 1st 2011, which means you pass Step 1, CK, and CS and get your credentials verified.

ECFMG certified means you pass Step 1, Step 2 CK, and Step 2 CS, and get your medical school transcript and Diploma and Form 187 verified by the ECFMG.

Your friend got invitations to interviews with only the CK results! if she did, then she would have got many many more invitations if she were certified.

I am not saying that those who are not certified have no chance, but if you read my previous post, I said "maximize" chances.
