I'm from India and I finished my final year of MBBS. I'll be starting my year-long internship and I may give my step 1 by 2017. But I want to start applying for externships and electives soon but I'm worried it's too late to apply now since I'll graduate in a year and that I won't get enough time for step1.
They ask IMGs to apply 6 months before the rotation begins, and by that time I may have finished my internship and would have graduated. Hence considered not eligible for externships.
Plus I'll be giving my toefl soon, but the results are valid for only 2 years so am i required to give the exam again? And if I'm not applying for any electives this year, can I safely give my Toefl next year?
