If you're planning to apply for this year's Match, the latest safe date is July 31. After August 1, score reporting is delayed until September 26... and if you want to be "safe", you want your score back in time for ERAS opening on September 15.

It'll probably show up on Sep 26, unless you're super-lucky and it shows up early.

That's the big question, what interval of time will it be delayed to sept, first two weeks?, may be after two weeks they show up in the 3rd wednesday, anybody knows what happened last year and the year before. As somebody told me, this happens every year. If only i knew that before

Nobody knows for sure. Even the NBME doesn't know for sure.

If you want to know what happened last year, just go to the Student Doctor network forums and look at the "USMLE World and Step II Scores" thread in the "Step 2" forum. Around September of last year, a lot of people probably reported their scores in that thread. Most of them would also tell you when they took the test.

safe late ck date should be termed safe score ck date.in the end the match depends on ur score rather than a few days delay of score.

Warning! Stressed; please help!

Hey guys, unfortunately I will be changing my CK date to Sept 10 . I'm just not ready to take it. This means (I think) the results will be out Oct 10. Should I upload my application once I have my result (Oct 10/11) OR should I upload it anyway without the CK result (Sept 15)? Will my application look incomplete? Will my CK score be shown as pending? Will Program Directors automatically get my score once its out? I have passed Step 1 and CS; I'm still in med school.

I would really appreciate some insight!!!!

Wait until your score comes out. When you've got a complete application programs know where you stand and whether to offer you an interview.

Oct 10/11 is not late at all...about a month after ERAS opens. I'd be worried if you were closer to 2 months late, but you should be fine.
