Help ECFMG certification after Sep 15

Hi all,
My USMLE step 2CK score won't get available until September 16, and it will take 2 weeks for me to get ECFMG certified after that. should I submit my documents to ERAS on September 15 or should I wait until I became certified?
Thanks

I am in a similar situation. Everyone I have been speaking too told me to apply sept 15 anyway. It is not optimal but better than waiting.

I'm also in the same boat. Shouldn't we wait and apply until we have all docs in hand? What about the USMLE transcript? That'd also take time right?
