Default When should I finish all steps to be able to participate in 2017 match?

I've already finished CS.

I havent finished Step1 or Step2 ck.

I heard CK needs upto 6 weeks or so to get the result. I also heard ECFMG certification needs 8 weeks.

Could someone please advise me regarding the timeline that is in front of me:

When should i have completed the last exam which is CK?

When should I have completed ECFMG certification? (do i have to do any paper work for this? or automatically get certified as soon as all 3 results are available?)

When do i ask for LOR's? Get Eras token? Submit to ERAS?

When are the dates for these?

SOrry for the million questions.

ANy help would be much appreciated.

Just got a reality check that I might be losing one more year now. Freaking out.

thanks

Hey tarsuc,

I can't answer all the questions right now, but I think a lot of those can be answered by looking at the ECFMG website.

Step 2 CK results almost always take 3 - 4 weeks. There are a few exceptions around some holidays like Thanksgiving, but otherwise it's the same as for step 1.

Try to get the LORs at the end of each rotation and ask how to contact your preceptor when you get your ERAS token. I think they can start to upload the LORs around May after you get your AAMC id. All the letters should be uploaded before you can send the applications on 09/15/16.

step2 taking deadline
Google "ecfmg timeline" and you will have a clear picture of when to do what. Once u pass the three steps and have ur credentials verified it usually takes 20-30 days to be ecmfg certified.
