Question Need to Conform ERAS start date

I am planning on taking my CK August 23rd. This way I will have my score by September 11th. I just want to conform since ERAS won't be starting till September 15th this year, will I be ok applying on time by September 15th? I keep reading conflicting messages saying it starts September 1st or Sept 15th. This may seem like a redundant question but I want to make sure I have my ERAS timeline correct. Thank you for the help.

I was doing some research and I found the official ERAS timeline. http://www.ecfmg.org/eras/2013-timeline.html. ERAS will start Sept 15th this year.

The link you provided is for the 2012-2013 season, not 2013-2014 season.

Default That is so tight.

Hi,
I don't wanna scare you. But this feel so tight. I registered to take it by the 12th of August and I think to go beyond the second week of August, this could be risky. What if it took them an extra week for releasing your result? then you get it by the 18th? so late man..so late.

Yes I realize that. August 23rd is my last resort. I may take it before then but if I see I need more time I may push it to the 23rd. From my understanding, If you take the exam on a M/W/F, the scores should be expected the 3rd Wednesday after. Worst come to worst, it might be delayed a week.
