Default ECFMG certification and applying to programs requiring it.

My CK score is releasing this 24th.
I expect my ECFMG status to be certified by 30th (expected date of certification, as per a previous applicant's experience).

Now, I have two options:
1. Should I apply on the 24th asap?
2. Wait till 30th to be certified?

Someone told me I can call up ECFMG and ask for the date of certification that shall be mentioned on my certificate. Will mentioning this date on ERAS profile help, even before I actually receive the actual certificate?

Thanks a lot for reading this!!
