Arrow It depends on the date of your CK results

If you are going to get your CK score by the third week of September then I suggest you wait until you get the results.

If your CK results is going to be delayed beyond the third week of September then apply now.

Hey Sabio, should we follow this even if the program requires the ECFMG certificate for applying?
