Question Is July too late to take step 2 CS?

Hello, I'm scheduled to take the step 2 cs end of July. The reporting schedule is in October. Is this too late for matching in 2013?

Default We all have the same problem

I think all the program directors should be notified about that delay
Which is not our fault
That delay also comes in a critical period which is around the eras application
Eras should notify all programs by itself because it is their problem not us

Are you taking the exam after the break as well and applying for 2013?
I'm from a carribean school and heard it's extremely important to have all the stuff ready by sept 15 so I'm pretty worried.

Everyone should know that most of the interviews for IMG's are done before January (as stated by Sabio), so if your scores come in October, then you have 2 months to "get" interviews.

Essentially you are losing a months worth of time to be "getting" interviews, this places you in hot water imo.
