Depends.
If the program states that ecfmg certification is required for interview consideration, then I would think that it is a filter for the program...

I have my CK on 1st August so haven't been able to go thru all the programs in Peds.

It would be great if somebody with any experience could tell me if a lot of programs ask for certification at the time of application

Thank you
