Post I Need Your Advice!


I am an IMG graduated from med school in 2009.
I was planning to take Step 1 exam by end of this year, and Step 2 CK and CS later on in the beginning of next year. This to be ready for the 2015 match. But I was shocked when I see that ECFMG recommended to do the Step 2 CS before the end of this year in order for the score to be ready for the Match.

So, I need your advice in taking the CS 1st and then the step 1 and CK? As I am still willing to participate in 2015 match. And how much time you guys think will be needed for the CS, and for the CK?
I am very confused and I really need an advice here if I still have a chance to catch the 2015 Match.

They are recommending taking CS now to people who will participate in this year's match (2014) to begin residency in 2015. If you plan to participate in 2015 match (to start residency in 2016) then you don't have to worry about it, because you still have time.

They usually do this because of all the exams, CS score report is the one that usually takes longer to arrive.
