Hey guys,

Looking for an idea on Licensure timeline and if I will be able to start residency on time. I just signed a pre-match contract, but am concerned that whether or not my state license will be ready by the time July rolls around.
So I plan on graduating by May 25 (and the school has assured me that my diploma will be ready on that day). I have made arrangements for everything to be submitted to ECFMG that day, but will it be possible for me to get certification, and get licensed in time before the start of residency.

I am assuming 4 week lag time for certification, and 2 week lag time for state licensure, and this would mean a late start. Is it possible to get licensed, while ECFMG is still pending? Is there some type of a "status report" I can submit rather than the physical certificate in the meantime?
