Help

I am doing that but very confused about the process. I have started my ERAS application already and I was wondering if it is doing to be submitted automatically in September? Does any one have any idea about how the application process work for someone applying late (in October)? Is there a deadline for that?

IMO, wait for the ck score. you will be filtered out by those programs requiring those 2 scores.. and i tell you they will filter out, no exceptions. thats how they lessen a thousand apps they are receiving.
but you could start applying to those needing only the step1, but you have to search & find out what programs are those.

Most University Programs and University affiliated Programs start filtering early. If you are okay with community programs, then you can apply late. I have a friend doing int med that applied sept 1 last year and had her CK automatically updated in the end of October. She got into a community program. She had 99, 99 (I don't know her 3 digit scores) 1 month USCE and was 6 months out of college(fresh graduate.) So it really depends on your over all application and the standards that you have set for yourself:-)
