Default Please Help late match !!

Hey all,

Please I'm really confused and don't know what to do.

I'm an IMG /green card holder . I have a 4-month USCE and good recommendation letters.
I have passed step 1 (250) and CS (first attempt)

My CK result will be released on october/1/2014 . can I still apply for the match or it's too late ?

What is the deadline for the match since I haven't created MYeras acount yet. Should i go on and create one ? or it's too late ?

i would appreciate your inputs : (

I think you should go ahead and get an account and apply right away..You can always update your profile..You have a great score on step 1 and you passed CS..These are the biggies IMO..Good luck!

Like i said, your step 1 score is very good..and you're done with CS in the 1st attempt..There's no point in waiting for CK and taking a chance..Most of the programs are downloading the applications (started on the 15th itself)..So i think you should apply.

Since it will be available on the 1st anyway, I think you should apply..You can re-transmit your scores once its available.

You can still apply. Oct 1st is before most interviews and well before ranking lists are made, so your ck score will definitely be seen by programs which download your application. Many programs allow IMGs to apply without ECFMG certification needed until the before the start of residency. Having your cs result will be a big help here, programs will know you are unlikely to fail ck given your step 1 score. Some programs however require ECFMG certification at the time of applying, so dont waste your money applying to these.
