    Step 2 CS and Match 2010

    Advertisements



    Does anyone know when we have to take this exam by to match for 2010? I know it is RECOMMENDED that we take this exam, and have our scores by Sept. 1st blah blah blah to be the ideal FMG applicant...

    Lets be serious tho, nothing so far about my medical school career has been "ideal" so I welcome any positive input on this matter... From what i hear we have to take it by December, and that programs will still grant interviews even without Step 2 CK or CS... Anyone else hear anything?

    don't know about the CS, but I do know that as IMG's they would like to see the CK resutls before offering an interview. so the sooner the better. I'm assuming the CS is not as important to have it that early...tha'ts just an assumption btw

    must have CS done before dec 31 to get grades by match. If not, you're not eligible to match.

    Some programs have filters that automatically reject you if you don't have both CS and CK scores. I would recommend having a score in by Sep 1, and maybe Sep 15th at the latest. At the very least, call each program you are applying to and ask them what they require in order to interview you - that way you can save some money. Even if you find programs that don't require a CS score, you should still take the test by Dec 31 like Nikki said.

    I took the CS about 4 weeks ago in chicago. It was convenient for me to do take the exam here since I'm doing my rotations at JPH currently. In my opinion its better to just take it and get it out of the way, especially if you have already done IM. The exam was pretty easy and as long as you drill and practice from first aid CS you should be fine....
