Exchange/Swap Emergency Regarding Step 2 CS Date

Fellow forum members,

I have made the grave mistake of scheduling my Step 2 CS on January 15th, thinking that it would be in time for the 2014 match. I just realized that February 26th is the first day of the reporting period for tests taken in January, which is the same date for students and programs to submit their rank lists. Unfortunately I have already applied through ERAS and paid over $7000 in application fees, applying to 300 programs .

Everything else for my application was complete 1 month ago, including Step 1, Step2CK, LORs, and rotations.

If there is anyone who may find it within their hearts to be able to switch with me or offer me a date any time from now until through December 31st, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much for your time and help.

your best bet is to use check4change. Google it, and download it via Fire Fox. I got the exact date I wanted just because of that extension or program whatever you wanna call it.

I agree with step-step. Plus you can't exchange dates with anyone. You have to wait till somebody drops their date then you can pick it up right away.

I have the same problem and I have a question about that. Applicants who have their CS after Nov. The 3rd will receive their result on 29th of Jan at best shot. Do you think any program will take a risk give an interview to someone whose CS result is not ready? The deadline for interviews are 30th January at least on paper. Do you think an applicant like this has a chance?
