Star When dose the match season end?

I would like to know when the match season ends. I know it officially opens
on September 15. What is the closing date and until when is it possible to apply for a residency?

Official end if match season is the match week. If you actually meant when is the latest date to apply, it is different from program to program.

Most list Dec 1st as their deadline. Unfortunately by that time the interview list is usually filled with waitlisted applicants.

As an IMG you need to make every effort to apply on time. If you have really high scores, you may survive even though you apply late. I wouldn't risk it though.

Thank you, IMlover. I was not familiar with the terms.
I only asked because I need to know when to schedule my CS exam.
I plan to take on September 2016 (that means- I'll have to register on September 2015). I know that it takes months to get the result, and I was wondering if I still have time to apply at least to some of the programs.

You can check the reporting schedul for 2015 CS on the usmle.org

Choose exam period where you'll have your result ready before Sept 15.
