Hey everyone. I'm trying to plan time off and timing of buying Qbanks...

I just sent in my certificate of identification for Step 3 today and I'm wondering how long it will be before I can schedule, and then how quickly I will actually be able to take it. None of my co-residents remember for sure. I'm hoping to take it at the end of March before starting rotations where it will be next to impossible for the next 2 months (ER and ICU).
