Calendar Can't find CS date

Hi

I'm a totally desperated IMG! As on the ECFMG Information Booklet said to apply to step 2 cs at least two months in advence, big was my surprise when I found the seats already completely filled until september.

I want you to ask two things:

1. Is there any chance to wait for a vacancy during this period until september (in order to get the report between oct 3 - oct 31)?

2. If I take the cs for the next period in order to get the result between
dec. 5 - jan. 2, do I have any chance for 2014 nrmp matching? (assuming I get my step 1 & 2 CK score for sept. 1)

Thanks for your answers, in advance.

There is a good chance you will get a spot. Sign up for the Step 2 CS scheduling email notifications, available through the Step 2 CS scheduling calendar! I got my exam date that way!

Wow, your situation is maybe worse than mine.
Anyway, There's no other choice than keep trying and struggle for even one or .1 percent of chance. I even asked for collaboration to my bro so that he can watch out for a seat while I can't be infront of the computer.
I also think it is better to use C4C. It functions quite well.
God will save you. All happens for something.

I was in pretty much the same situation, had to take it before a certain date, and I used the email notifications and it worked out! So the safest bet is probably to just use both!! Hopefully one will work out!

Hi, Val7.

I've used Check 4 Change as a webpage change notifier. Firstly, I was looking for changes every 30 seconds. I met 3 or 4 changes in 2 days, but always was seconds later to reach. Every time I clicked the recently available date, it appeared: "Date almost not available". So, I've chosen the option for customize to check every 5 seconds, which was more or less the limit for my computer and internet velocity.

Incredibly, there are so many changes during the day. I could find a vacancy and reschedule the first day after changing my checkin interval, without beeing in front of the computer 24 hours a day.

Important point:
-vacancies are filled in SECONDS. Not MINUTES.
-it seems that those changes that are filled in seconds, are not informed by ECFMG notifier option.

Good luck!!

sorry, I forgot you already finished the exam. I don`t intend to despise your advise. Of course mail notification service also is a good tool. As a matter of fact, I received one yesterday.
I appreciated so much your words of encouragement. At that time, I was so desperate.
Now, thanks to god, I could reschedule.
Thanks very much!!

Default C4C

Go to: https://addons.mozilla.org/es/firefo.../check4change/
for downloading.

All you have to do is select the text you're looking for change, right click, and it will appear the option for C4C. You'll choose the periodicity of checking you like (also possible to customize the time). If you're looking for five cities, then it's necessary to open five tabs. For two different months in five cities, ten tabs, and so on. Good luck
