Default Late application for Step 1

My application to USMLE for a scheduling permit for Step 1 was late b/c some information was missing (yikes). The completed application has been in USMLE hands for over two weeks. However, it's now April 17 and I planned to take Step 1 by mid-May, as clerkships begin then. Do you think I can do it?
1. How long does the USMLE application process take and do you have any suggestions on how to expedite the process?
2. How hard will it be to schedule an last minute appointment at a Prometric Center? There are a number of centers in my area and I am resigned to travel if necessary. Thanks so much for your help!

The same thing happened with my application. I'd suggest contacting your dean's office people responsible for sending your transcripts to the usmle. They don't do anything unless your school emails them your documents. However, once they do, you will get an email saying they have your papers in order and will send you a scheduling permit ASAP, which only takes a couple of days.
and yes, they verify transcripts again if there was an error in your earlier application, at least that is what happened in my case.

Thanks for the info.

Does anyone know how long it takes for Prometric to get notification that you have a scheduling permit, so you can schedule an appointment?

Could you hypothetically make an appointment one day and take the test the following day (assuming availability).

Finally, do you recommend taking the "test drive" at Prometic Center in advance of taking the test?
