Default ECFMG certificate

Some one knows how long it takes to arrive the ECFMG certificate after you pass the CS?

They say you will receive your certificate during the following 2 weeks after you have completed all the steps... however if you are from an area that is near and/or has a really important airport that connects to the US you will receive it in 1 week ( I live in Mexico and I received my certificate 1 week after I passed the USMLE step 2 CS)

A week max.. remember that they will send you the certificate to the address you have online in ECFMG.. so unless you change that then they will send it to whatever address you put in the beginning (if it is your actual address then dont worry)

If you have really good scores and everything in your profile is desirable then yes..

The vast majority of programs demand that IMG's apply ONLy after the ECFMG certificate has been issued.. so its a gamble if you really want to proceed.
