I just took Step 2 ck last week and am awaiting my scores. I was hoping to pass and enter the match through ERAS very late. I need advice for applicants receiving scores in late December. My plan is to apply locally; as I have had 3 immediate family members hospitalized in the last 6 months and need to stay in the vicinity for residency. Many people have suggested I sit out a year and reapply next year. But I am hoping to get a late interview spot locally. My application is complete except for my scores. I just have not started ERAS yet. Any advice?
