Default ECFMG certificate and step 3 application

Just cleared step 1 and step 2 last week.on oASIS it says that I am ECFMG certified.

Should I wait to get ECFMG certificate by POST before applying for step 3 or should I apply for step 3 today?

I'm waiting for my CS results, but I am already thinking about this issue!
I think the best think is to call ECFMG or FSMB and ask directly)))

I know what you mean and agree completely. but im already preparing like 3+ months for CS and more or less ready. 2-3 hours during the day are enough. I first of all want to sublimate my anxiety in something. and secondly I for sure plan to be done with Step3 before interviews and especially residency If i of course get in one. and most of all I don't want to lose the shape after CK and believe me I have not even noticed and it is around 4 months already. and Im sure i already forgot lot of things.

One of friends has passed with UW q bank twice + UW CCS twice without accent on score. lets see. I still agree that I'm not ready for full blown study now.. but still need advice if there can be something else i can read before delving into Q bank.
And by the way just read that some programs require Step3.
Any additional point that will make me look little better in application process is really valuable. If I take CS latest in September and get results in October. and be prepared by that time i will be able to take Step 3 after reconstruction.

Your decision to postpone cs must be personal otherwise you are absolutely ready for it. But won't it affect you if you apply to match without cs?

You just need the issue date of your certificate and its number which actually the same as your USMLE number. Check OASIS regularly and open the tab "medical credentials and ecfmg certificate", see the issue date which will be filled once your certificate is released

How soon will the issuing date be updated in OASIS once I get all my results?
