Info No Medical Diploma

Hi guys, I had finished my medical curriculum (6 yr Course) recently. ECFMG requires me to send my medical diploma to complete my certification. Problem is that my diploma will not be issued shortly, their is a high possibility that it might not even be ready for this match. So, can i still apply with my USMLE step 1,2(CK, CS) without holding a diploma???

Yes you can apply without the diploma but you need to be done with it around December so that NRMP will not have a problem in ranking you.

I dont thonk so, ECFMG will not give you the certificate without confirming your diploma from the medical school.
