But what if they filter us out because CK score still pending? I want to apply on the 26th, just to have my application complete. But, I'm torn. I really don't know what to do. Don't want to get filtered out.

That's another thing... Some LORs are not available yet... I'm on the same boat...

I do have a question. Can a program that filtered us out because we need Step 2 score will reconsider again when we report it?
And if we release the USMLE transcript, is it automatically updated to show the CK score after it's reported? Does it show that it's pending until Sept 26th?
This whole thing is so confusing to me...
Hope we all make it!
