Question Want to apply for 2014 Match.

I got my Step 1 score. Took 3 days break after exam and preparing for CK. Want to apply this year. Before what date should I give CK and CS. Best way to time them. It would be great help. Thanks.

As far as i know, CS spots are filled up past August. CK i am sure you could take at any time, that shouldnt be the the problem. I know CS reporting takes at least 8 weeks, if not more. If you take CS in September, you will be late for the 2014 match. I mean you could try, but your chances will be a lot less because the vast majority of programs would have downloaded their applications by end of October. This is the reason everyone says to be ready by Sept 15 (even be ECFMG ceritified/validated) by then in order to send your application in. I am in the same quandry, but worse as i havent taken my step 1 yet. I am holding off until the 2015 match because i dont have time to be ready for this year .

no..no you dont. Step 3 just adds to your resume. Although, if you want an H1B visa, you must take Step 3.
