Question Residency match 2014!!!!

Hi! I am a little confused... I just got a mail from the ECFMG reporter about applying to the step 2CS and that one must do the test before dec 2013 to be able to apply for residency in 2014. I thought that step 1, 2CK and 2 CS had to be done before August 2013 to be able to apply for the summer of 2014???
Please help me clear this up

The mail you received is referring to participating in the 2014 Match. That is actually different from applying to residency where you should have all scores available.

Ok but can you explain to me about the match? Does it include me? I am a Swedish doctor who's doing my residency right now in Sweden, I will finish in February 2014. I have to do my residency (anaeasthesia) all over again when I come to the US and my plan was to first do all the steps before the summer of 2013 but since I work full time and more than that I haven't have time to do all of the test so now My new plan is to do the test before 2014 (I will finish long before the summer of 2014 but I guess that I will still miss the application to start my residency in the summer of 2014)
My new plan is to do the step 1 in June and then the step 2 CK+CS in the fall, do I have to care about the mail ECFMG reporter send about the match?

The Match is part of the NRMP website where you rank the programs that you applied through ERAS and received an interview for. If you're going to take all those exams by fall I wouldn't worry at all about the mail. The only thing is that when you apply to residency programs through the ERAS site, you may not have your results on time. However, it's possible that you may still get interviews and you can still participate in the Match. Hope that helps. If I missed something others are more than welcome to contribute.

Ok, one more question..
Do you think that I still can apply for residency to start in the summer of 2014 even though I will have my scores of all the test done for example in October? I have a lot of clinical experience and really good recommendation letters.
Thank you so much for your help!

I'm sure you still can. Doesn't hurt to try.
