Calendar Last date to take step 3?

hello,

when is the last date when I can take step 3 for the result to be available before rank order list?

correct me if I am wrong?
Rank order list submission- 15th February 2013??
Step 3 result time- 3 weeks maximum??

So if I take the exam on 15th January, will I be on the safe side?
Please help:sorry:

Step 3 result time is 3 weeks minimum and some times ranges upto 8 weeks(you can read it on official website). In my experience most receive on average 4 weeks.

you must have the result on Match Day, not rank order list day.

Remember this is Step 3 Forum.

Step 3 results are not needed for the match.

Thumbs Up

if you want to use your step 3 for maybe getting a higher ranking from a program, results need to be out by Jan 31st in most programs.
If you want your step 3 solely for an H1b, then you need it by match day.
