Hi all,

So all of us who are graduating this spring and matching in march 13 are very frustrated by the fact that all decent programs have a requirement for IMGs on their webpage that says MUST HAVE ECFMG CERTIFICATE BY INTERVIEW, RANK ORDER DATE OR BY JANUARY of 2013. How in the world can the 90% of us who are graduating in jan, feb, march, april, may and even June have this certificate any earlier than may?? How has this worked for people in AUC SGU ROSS SABA ANTIGUA SMU in the past?? Any advice/comments appreciated.

That's not true at all. Before posting a rant, just do a quick search on all the threads. They do list that on majority of their sites, however it is not a requirement. As long as you have certification before you start residency, that's all that matters. And on a side note, what you have capitalized are all different dates.
