Yes Im done with step 1 and step 2 CK. I got high 220s for step 1 and low 230s for step 1. The exam was easy. Very much like the free 150 MCQ questions.
Did you do step 2 CK?

Thanks for information in this thread. So, can you not even submit your application if you haven't sat all Step 1 and 2 CK + CS? I'm not sure how it works.

I'm in a similar situation - will not be sitting CS until November (have Step 1 and CK done). I didn't know that applicants had to have CS done in order to be considered.
On a related note, where does one find out when individual programs start considering applicants?
Thanks!
