Take CK and if you score high, then apply on time. It's always good to apply with ECFMG certification, but you can work to update programs through e-mails and phone calls to try and get them to look at your application. Failing CS is a big red flag these days, but your USC should be able to bail you out if you are able to score well in CK and pass in your next attempt.

I was actually in your shoes a year ago, I stopped studying for CK for 2 weeks and gave CS in June and then went right back to CK for 1 month and gave it end of July. That way I was able to become ECFMG certified before I sent out my eras application on Sep 16.

you can apply late, I known people who applied in Dec and match. But it is not recommendable. You have a better chance to match, if you have all your steps, and a complete CV with letters and everything the first day.

With a 220 in step 1, a fail in CS, it's best you apply early with a full profile. Get ECFMG certified, with a great step 2ck score. Aim to pass step 3 before December.

If you apply before July 18, you can take the exam by November.

Hello, I'm really in doubt what to do....
I'm US IMG, I have my step 1 and ck scores ( both > 235) but I failed CS once. I took it again in july and I'll have my scores by october 7th. Considering I'm going to pass at this time, should I wait my CS scores to apply???
what is better: apply on sep 15 without my new CS or on October 7 with my new EXCELLENT cs score ?????
thank you
