Arrow Step 2 CS Email Notification Service

Hi guys; Philadelphia center is fully loaded. By experience, Is their any chance that someone may drop out and will show on ECFMG web site? Is their any other way to find that out?

Yes every one keeps scheduling and dropping. Subscribe to their email notification service. Keep your email box open in one window (better if you use desktop email notifier for your email), and the ecfmg scheduling calender in another. As soon as an email from ecfmg comes, just jump to the other window and grab that date....

If you using gmail use gmail mail checker or if hotmail then hotmail notifier.. there is notifier/checker for every email provider you use. Just google them.


I can understand your frustration...

Also, the ECFMG email notification is at the end of the page when you log into the Step 2 CS calender and scheduling, select your dates and center there.

Oh! it looks like you havent received your permit. Till you dont receive permit you cant do anything.

I would advice NOT to look at calender till you get your scheduling permit. Stress for no reasons. Once you have permit you will get the email notifications option.

Conc on studies till your permit arrives. Call ECFMG office if more than 3 weeks have passed....

Hi it is suspending on 19th May or so. In past 3 days i have seen three slots opened up in LA itself. Some one or other keeps cancelling.

Follow the tips i said and be quick to grab a date, any centre you get. If you use phone with email facility and internet, and away from a comp, as soon as u get email go to ecfmg website from phone itself and grab that slot!
