Default IMG Step 3 Before Residency

Hey everyone!!! Hope all is well in internet land. I am an IMG and I am done with all of my step exams but I am not matching until 2014. I graduate Nov 2013 and will also be done with my rotations at the end of Nov 2013. That means I have from Nov 2013 until July 2014 (when residency starts) to work and do research. I am hoping to take step 3 during this time and have it done before residency. Does anyone know if this is allowed? Or have any info on it? Thanks so much and hope everyone had a great weekend!!!

Some states allow taking step3 before starting residency, & once u have passed, the result is accepted by all states. So, u can definitely do step3 before residency. The best time to take step3 is soon after ck, as the knowledge is still fresh.
