Question Match

Hello all!

I'm extremely early but I have a question about applying to the 2014 match. I will be graduating in December of 2013 but I will not have my diploma by then. I will probably get my physical diploma some time in February. Can I still apply for the 2014 match in September or 2013??? I'll have step 1 and step 2 CK and CS by then. Is there any way that the ECFMG can confirm that I have graduated, without the physical diploma? I would hate to lose a year just because of that... I'm an US citizen IMG.

Thanks in advance!

I hope you can resolve this.
Have you ask about if UCIMED makes you do INtErnado at the end of your career?????
I know they used to make you do it, hopefully not anymore.

Yes we do have to do the last year or internship but the problem is that they don't give me the diploma until after I finish my internship.
