New York NY State Licensure requirements

I am an IMG wanting to get a fellowship in glaucoma in New York City. The program is asking if I am eligible to get a NY state license. I had completed only both steps 1 and 2 of the USMLE in 1995 (There was no step 3 yet then). Am I eligible?
Thank you

Did you have more than 12 weeks of core clinical rotation outside your country of origin (in United States)?

If the answer is no then you are eligible

Yes. you got me right.
They are asking you because if you were a Caribbean graduate you might not be eligible for New York State License.

If you have done a core clinical rotations outside the united states that extends over 12 weeks then you will not be eligible.
