Can anyone clarify the policy of ERAS on Step 2 scores for me? I'd like to see my Step 2 score before I decide whether or not to release it, but I also want to take it as early in my fourth year as possible. I know that you can decide NOT to authorize automatic transmission of updated scores, but when you initially sign up for ERAS and release your scores, all scores on your transcript as of that date are released. So when is the earliest you can do that? I'm afraid that if I take the test in early August, my scores might not be officially released from ERAS until September and then my Step 2 scores will automatically go with Step 1. Does anyone know the earliest time I could take Step 2 and still keep my scores "hidden"? Thanks!!
