Info [IMG] A few questions about matching

Hey guys,
I wanted to ask what is the last date you can give your step to apply for match?
I've given step 2 CS, going to give step 1 by May first week. Currently not sure about CK.

I read somewhere that August 5th should be your last date so that your result comes before Sept 15, but the result only takes 3 weeks, correct? Then, can I give my CK by like August 20th and still apply for this match?

Also, what's the next step after finishing all the steps? How do I start applying for my interviews?

there is no deadline for completing the steps, but for IMGs applying to match need to have all the scores with them before Sep 15th.

If you complete all the steps in the first week of August then you will be getting the scores before September 15th and also you need to have ECFMG Certified also.
