Can someone elaborate more on the effects that this is going to incur on our applications?

Will the loss of 8 days be detrimental?

Now, I have a growing displeasure for the ECFMG. I HATE THEM. WTF!

Its not ECFMG, its NBME who sets the rules. Calm down, we are all affected. I'd rather do really well, and get scores Sep 26, than to have a score that is 20 pts lower and have in time for Sep 15.
I need those 2 weeks in Aug, and i'm doing my rotations and studying at the same time, so I know for sure I cant take it end of July.

You are right the NBME.

Im in the same day position, the loss of those days is whats making me angry, because here we are working our butt off to get scores in on time, but they so conveniently decide to change the exam format at a crucial time.

But, i guess nothing we can do.
