Question Are my Exam Dates OK

Hello there.

I am a 27 year old international medical graduate and US citizen. I graduated in 2010 and recently sat for my Step 1, and am still waiting for my results. if things go as planned, I will be participating in the 2012 match for a spot in Internal Medicine.

I have already scheduled my CK and CS on the following dates:
July 13 - CS
August 8 - Step 2 CK

I am also actively seeking an observership position and am hoping against all hope to secure one.

Are my exam dates okay or should I move the CK up? (although I really don't want to as I need to perform exceptionally well since I'm not confident with how my Step 1 went) if they follow the current schedule, my Step 2 CK scores should be posted August 31, the day before ERAS opens.

thank you to anyone who can help!

Default Yes, you are OK

Yes, you are OK.

You'll be getting your ECFMG certificate in the first week of September and that's perfectly fine to start your ERAS applications.
