Default SOAP application without Step 2 ck

I am an IMG working as an internal medicine resident in my home conuntry. I finished my Step 1 and Step 2 CS but my CK will only be in May. Can I still apply for SOAP or do I have to be ECFMG certified?

While you do not need to be fully ECFMG certified, the main things you need to be Post-Match SOAP eligible are:

1. Your USMLE Step 1, Step 2 CK and Step 2 CS scores reported by the week before The Match

2. Registration with both NRMP and ERAS**

** NRMP registration closed February 24th

Without your USMLE Step 2 CS, you will not be eligible for SOAP this year.
