I have the same question and I want to know if the month of graduation is considered too? I mean would it make any difference if for example u graduate in FEB 2009 or DEC 2009? because I have graduated in DEC 2009...

Attendings working in the US have been telling me that the preferable range is less than 5 years from graduation; the earlier the better. Also, CV gaps are frowned upon. They'll ask you what were you doing all that time? :eek:

I think the timing will be the period between the year of graduation and the time you apply for the match.
