    there is no "exact" date.. but your scores must be in by rol deadline... (feb 15th) so technically to be safe, take the test by jan 15th?? this allows 4 weeks for score reporting..
    however last i checked there were no slots open till spring.. but you could get lucky if you happened to log on right after someone cancelled..
    if you dont get your score in you will be dropped from match, but you could still scramble in somewhere and just have to have socres in by july 1ish..
    good luck

    It takes at least 8 weeks or more to get CS results back. So January 15 is way late in the game. Go to ecfmg and click on announcements, there you will see a table with exam dates and corresponding score report dates. You should then figure out when you should take the exam by. From my estimates, i think mid december to be on the safe side.

    you are absolutely correct: cs tests taken from nov5th through dec 31 are reported begining jan31, ending feb21. this means that the op may still miss the rol deadline, so the only true safe method is to schedule by nov4th.

    The main problem is most locations where the 2cs is given don't have any open dates until January. Sometimes a cancellation will open up the day before. Does this mean you have to wait until he following year match?
    When you become my age you will realize all of the hard work and studying was worth the effort.
    "60 years young" another 60 to go if my doctor sons keep me alive with free prescriptions!!

    not as bad

    t's not as bad as it looks when you try to schedule for CS. When i did mine there were no dates left for 2006 at all. The good thing is that there is a facility to get email notifications in the system if you enter your preferred dates and test centers. You will get lots of email notifying you when a date(s) you prefer open up. I got lots of these at least 10 a day. The trouble is they go within minutes sometimes even seconds, so the trick is for you to stay online with whatever email alert you have so that when you get the email you rush, I mean RUSH to the ecfmg website to reschedule.Better do it at night when most people are sleeping ! Good luck. I found a date for October 2006 this way.
