Hi, I've set my timeline such that I am able to take my step 2 CK on August 30th 2016. I wanted to ask, given that I get my CK result in 3 weeks, can I still sit in the match for 2017 if I start uploading the documents on the ERAS portal from Sept 1 and eventually upload CK results later on? Please lemme know urgently. Thank you!

Sounds like your timeline is set up just fine. While the September application opening date is a good place to start applying, especially for competitive programs, each program has its own deadline. It is not the end of the world if you cannot start applying the day applications open. As long as you have your supporting documents ready to go, I think you'll be able to make the 2017 Match.

I would not count yourself out from this year's match. If it's tests you're missing, just look for programs that don't require the ECFMG Certification at the time of application (they will be less likely to care). You never know if a program will want you or not.

In the mean time, get your other supporting documents together and make sure they are as strong as possible.

Hi im a FMG who would like to apply for the 2017 match. What is the last possible date I can schedule my CK and CS for realistically?

I haven't taken any steps right now and am looking to fix my timetable for steps. I REALLY want to match in 2017.

From what i saw on the ECFMG website the applications open around september 2016.

So if I schedule Step 1 in june beginning. Step 2 CK in August end and CS in September will I be applicable for the deadline?

Any assistance will be appreciated. Please reply
