Sabio, Steptaker or someone who has the answer, could you please clarify this for us? Someone posts the same question basicly every week it seems. Searching the internet just worsened my confusion. So, If my diploma is issued in July 2007, it's 5 year until I submit my application in Sept 2012 but 6 year until the match in March 2013 and till the actual start date in July 2013. WHICH ONE DO THEY COUNT?
Also, is there any list about programs taking old grads? No information on it can be found on the website of many programs. Why is it better for them that hundreds of applicants will be calling them with the same question?

They'll count the years at the time they see your application September/October most of the times.

There's no hard rule about this, it all depends on the program coordinator and program director and whatever they like.

However, some of them will set up criteria such as they'll say we accept 2008 grad and up. So check their website.

Also, try to contact the program coordinator and tell her that even though you are 2007 grad, you've been continuously in training during that time.
