    let me get this sraight, you're basically done with your cores and half way done with your electives? so you have basically 6 months to do the remaining 17 elective credits?

    i think you could finish those requirements easily but i understand where you are coming from. studying for step 2, and participating in the match might be a problem. if i am not mistaken, this is already mid-cycle and tons of people have already hit the interview trail.

    if you havent started interviewing yet or even filled out the proper forms,eras, i think you may be a little late unless you plan to scramble or sign outside the match.

    If you want to make the match, I believe you have to get your Step 2 ck/cs done by December in order to have your results back by the "rank order list" date. I want to say that date is in February, and this is why its been recommended to have your exams both done by December, or done early in the month of December. The trickiest one is the Step 2 cs, because you want to have done a few electives before attempting that exam.
