Default Need Genuine Advice Please. Help me with Dates.

Hey guys ,

I need to really know if the applications due date dies after september 15 ?

Here is my problem .

Need a longer time to consolidate step 1 prep .
So planning to take it on May 20 . Ideal would be May 27 .

Then have to take CS . within a month .

Let us say , if i am done with these around june 20 .

Can i take step 2 CK around august 10 or 15 ??

Will i be still up for this year's applications ??

Thanks in Advance.
Need serious Replies .

Yeah, your CS result should come in August, and CK around 1st week of September. You should be good to go.

However, you'd get only 2 months prep for CK, is that okay?

That's what I essentially did and I'm did alright on CK. I probably could have scored higher, but I still scored relatively well taking it right after Step 1.

It can be done, but it's a bit stressful.
