Default Medical transcript in Nov/Dec - too late for match?


I expect to graduate from med school in Germany in Nov/Dec. Therefore I will receive my final medical school transcript and certification that I completed all required courses only in November, probably December.

Does this make it impossible for me to participate in the 2016 match? Or does it just lower my chances of matching?

Thank you so much for any help.

As long as step 1, 2ck and 2cs are done and you apply in September with all of your LORs, it shouldn't affect your chances negatively in any way. Most students applying for the first time do so when they still have most of their fourth year electives to complete. Good luck
