Default No step 3 in match of 2015?

As per the new bulletin by USMLE, the last date for step 3 registration is 31st july. And the result of restructured step 3 will come in april 2015. What should we do if we want H1B visa and cant do step 3 before 31st july?

Most of the people like me as i have just graduated from the medical school, we wont be able to get ecfmg certified to apply for step 3 by then. My CS is on 3rd june and the result will probably come in august..do i still have the chance to apply for H1 visa if i give restructured step 3 in nov though i wont have the result by the match then?

Aha ! I understand you ... I think then you are stuck with the J1 visa, or try to do your CS before that (if you can)

Yes u have a chance. step3 before 31st July may only be of some help to u in the match apart from that once u would get ur results by April 2015, no problem, u can still apply for H1B visa which would take around 2weeks to acquire before it would be time to start residency. so don't worry.

So if you study extra hard and take the exam 1 month early, it can still work out. if you feel though that youd fail if you took it earlier, then its better to just wait until next year than to have a failing exam score. i dont know anything about visas exactly though so maybe someone else can give more insight

Why do you need a residency personal statement writing service?
JediJames I am preparing for step 2 ck and I can give exam before November but my CS result will be in august though i m taking it in May..and CS result is needed for applying for step 3. That actually sets the whole path off.

Hypermedia and Jesijames the problem is the CS result. I won't be able to get the result before July 31st..the reporting periods begins in august and without CS result can't apply for step 3. The last date for step 3 registration is 31st July!
