Correct Answer Yes. It's better

It's better if you are ECFMG certified (passed 1, CK, and CS) before September 2011. But you can still apply if you haven't finished all the exams by then though your chances of getting interviews will be significantly lower.

I've heard that CS takes 3 months for the results. Should I do then CS before CK??????
Planning on doing step 1 in march or feb if I'm ready.
There's no other time to match except for september??????

Yes, it's better to do the CS before the CK. Also see here http://www.usmle-forums.com/general-...ake-first.html

The matching season starts in September and ends in March the year after it. The earlier you apply the more chances you have.
