Apply September 1st, and ERAS will update the PDs so your app will get another chance.

If your CK results will be out before or on the last week of September, then don't apply now, wait until you get the results.

If your CK results won't be out before or on the last week of September, then do what ApplicantGuide told you.

Same here. If we decide to apply in Sept., should we include programs that require the ECFMG certificate? I thought they could automatically filter us. Or wait for those programs until we get it?

They will automatically filter you out if the certificate is a requirement. You can try to contact them individually in an attempt to avoid the filter.
