Your ECFMG Status Report will be automatically transmitted to your ERAS (every 2 weeks) and you don't need to report it yourself.

Dear step taker,
I'm an IMG and my credentials have been verified by ecfmg. My ck score (last score) will be out on Sept 16th (most probably). As you know most of the university-based programs will require my ecfmg certification by the time of application. Now my question is, assuming that I'm fully eligible by Sept 16th, and according to what you mentioned my status will show up as certified in my eras no sooner than Oct 1st right?! Now what's your idea of applying to these programs?! Do you recommend to apply as soon as I get my ck score?! Or wait until being ecfmg certified and then apply?!
Thanks in advance.
