6. Is there a deadline by which my exam application and exam Certification Statement or Certification of Identification Form must be received at ECFMG?
For Step 1 and Step 2 CK, your application does not need to be received in advance of an eligibility period to obtain that eligibility period. To select and obtain an eligibility period, ECFMG must receive both the on-line part of your application and the Certification Statement (Form 183) or Certification of Identification Form (Form 186) by the 24th day of that eligibility period and your application must be processed by ECFMG by the 25th day of that eligibility period. This means that, although you can select an eligibility period as late as the 24th day of that eligibility period, there is no guarantee that you will be assigned that eligibility period, since your application may not be processed by the 25th day of the eligibility period. If your application is not processed in time to assign the eligibility period you select, you will be assigned the next eligibility period. Your assigned eligibility period will not be adjusted to compensate for days that have already passed. The eligibility period assigned to you will be listed on your scheduling permit.

simplest steps:

1. get # from ecfmg.org -- do this ASAP (I think you can do it anytime)
2. once you have the number, go to IWA link on ECFMG, and complete the application.
3. Pay $695 online
4. Print out form/mail to SMU Orlando office
5. SMU mails signed form to ECFMG
6. wait for 2 emails from ECFMG -- 1st says they have your form/2nd gives you the number you need to schedule USMLE exam (scheduling number)
7. go to prometric.com -- schedule exam online

Scheduling at prometric can be tight, so earlier is better than later. You can always push back your date within your window (as long as not w/in 5 days of exam date).

"You must submit your certification statement to Orlando a full 2 months before the window you wish to select. For example:

January 1st is the deadline for the March/April/May window
April 1st is the deadline for the June/July/August window

This gives the Orlando office a full month to process your certification."

Do you know if this is right?
If I turn my paperwork in on July 1st I get the Sept/Oct/Nov windows

If I turn it in on July 15 would I get the Sept15th-Nov15th window? Or would they push the whole window back to Oct-Dec?

I registed for my passcode or whatever (very first step) a couple days ago so I have to wait like a week for my number...any idea if they wil let me take it like Sep 15th or make me wait? Thanks.
