Anyone know if there is truly any sort of deadline for results on the PE exam if you are a DO applying through ERAS? I thought I read somewhere in the application process that we would be withdrawn from the match if the Step II CS result was not in ERAS before the NRMP deadline. I know it sounds strange, but I am taking both PE exams (USMLE and COMLEX) because in my state you can gain licensure through taking either of the steps in completion (3 of any). I don't want to have to take COMLEX III because I don't want to study OMM, and thus the reason for USMLE II CS for me. My school has not officially made it a requirement for COMLEX II PE so I might actually get away without ever having to take it. But I can't seem to find any reference to being withdrawn from the match for not passing the step II PE/CS by match day. I did find a reference to FMG's having to pass it prior to match day. Anyone have any real good scoop on this?
