hi guys , know most of u busy for residency application . well let me disturb u little wth my question here .
Done with my step 1 (256 ) , currently prepare for CK ( will do it in 31 october this year , aim for 250 +) and my CS ( is in december , i hope will pass ) ...but issue is currently am in my 5th year , so will be done with all steps such early . then come issue that what if i will want apply for match 2015 ( i mean be in a run of sept 2014 applicants for residency )? during this time will be ECFMG verified ( but not certifed ) last year med school (6th year ) . is there any guarantee for chance with such status ? or my status of being a medical student last year and not a graduate will spoil my chances ? thanks . ..note that will graduate before july 2015 , so will be before start of residency trainings .

What's the rush? Wait till next year to get a complete profile. You won't even be ecfmg certified till November, most programs will filter your application out.
