    My parents want to book a trip to Australia for next year. So I was just wondering when I will know when my NAPLEX date is so they can book around that. Also, any suggestions for a time to book a 2wk vacation around the graduation/NAPLEX time (no interest in NY wetlab), considering I want to do residency?

    To clarify, I just started P4.

    It depends on when your school certifies your eligibility, which usually happens the week or two after the last student has completed rotations or after graduation. For me, I won't be able to take the NAPLEX until the third or fourth week of June at the earliest.

    Thanks. So when do we know when the school will certify eligibility?

    Each school is different, largely depending on degree conferral. Contact your Dean's office to find out when your school does it.

    USP, You are so screwed. Whenever they feel like it and the least convenient time for you.

    After you graduate, you register with the NABP. When they get the materials, they will send you an ATT (authorization to test). That is good for one year. You can select any date that is available during that year. It should work out for you.
