Default Match Timeline

Hi! I tried to read back to a few pages but I couldn't see the same forum so...

I was wondering how the match really goes:

September 15 is when registration starts right? Up to what date can you register? I know the chances of getting an interview will be low but if you're still waiting for your exam score for example for CS or CK and will get it by November and just be ECFMG certified at that time, can you still register for the match at that time? Will ERAS still accept your application for the match and send out your credentials to the hospitals even mid-November?

You can have an answer for most of your questions here:

The time for registration starts on september 15, so by that time you should have everything ready to start applying to the different programs. You can apply whenever after that, each program has a different deadline for their applications, but basically the more you take, the less chances to match. ERAs will still be open, but the program you apply to might not receive your papers.
