Hi there,
I'm planning to do my step1 in june. However,I'm wondering if the results will come in time to apply for the 2011 match. How long does it take for the test results to arrive?

I've done the exam on May 12 and I've got my results on June 11.
So approximately 4 weeks.

Officially they tell you 6 weeks maximum. However, most students they get it within 4 weeks.

If you take step 1 in June 2010 then Step 2 CS in August 2010 then theoretically you can apply for the match but remember that many programs will ask for the complete ECFMG certificate before applying.

Thanks a lot Fahman-78 and Rasheed
So practically all the steps results should be ready by August to start matching. Any idea how long is the matching application window before 2011 applications are closed?

Are you going to finish all the steps by June! or u will finish Step 1 only by June. Because you are saying all the steps.

As for the matching applications;
Theoretically speaking, matching application can be accepted up until the first week of February 2011.
Practically speaking, if you don't apply in September 2010 then your chances are very very low in getting a match.
Also, many programs they have a special dead line for the applications (they mention that in their website), such date can be last day of December or last day of November or even October.
If you don't apply in September (first few days of September), thousands of others have already applied and the programs already start shortlisting their interviews and you will lose your chance of matching.
