Default Question about match application timing

Hello,

I am an AMG looking to participate in the 2017 match. I have already completed step1 and will have step 2CK by the end of this year. I am also scheduled for a few months of electives in the United States for the first few months of next year (2017).

My concern now is that my school would be able to provide my diploma until early July of next year and I still need to find the time for CS which from I have read takes a while for the results. So my question is whether I will be able to make match by September 2017 since I won't be able to submit for ECFMG certification until I have my diploma and CS score.

When is the latest I can take CS in order to get certificated and meet the September match deadline?

Thanks a lot!

Sorry made a mistake. I am an US-IMG not AMG.

CS results take about 8 weeks
