oh! Not sure about the legitimacy of re-applying thing. So be optimistic till you see it with your own eyes.

Same, also a USMD. My eligibility period expires January 2019. My permit link is still there as well (tested early October).

I tested mid October and my scheduling permit link was present on this past weekend, but the link is now gone.

Also, I tried the 'register for Step 3' trick. I'm an MS4 and received an ineligibility message just now. I'm going to be shocked if I failed CS, and I think it's more likely that I failed to meet the other requirement of MD or DO degree. Long story short, I don't know if it's a fair hole to exploit if you're not a degree-carrying applicant for Step 3. I'll share if I fail CS. Should make a sheet for this stuff.

Per the website:
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS
  • Pass USMLE Step 1, Step 2 CK and Step 2 CS; and
  • Possess an MD, DO or equivalent degree (for recent graduates, apply only after the date of graduation on your diploma; otherwise your application will be cancelled and a portion of your fees will be forfeited); and
  • If a graduate of a medical school outside of the US or Canada, obtain ECFMG certification (apply only after the issue date on your ECFMG certificate; otherwise your application will be cancelled and a portion of your fees will be forfeited); and
  • All examinees are limited to six (6) total attempts; and
  • All examinees are limited to three attempts within a 12-month period; and
  • 4th and subsequent attempts must be at least 12 months after your first attempt and at least six months after your most recent attempt.

You should read the post by reality19 on page 2. He is MS4 and could apply for step three a day before his CS result came out. It can be true but not always :)

Hope that trick starts working soon for you guys! I am so nervous :(. I couldn't sleep last night and have been unable to focus. Don't know how I'll get through my interview tomorrow!

Are there any reports of permits disappearing the night before, i.e. Tuesday night?

AMG here. Failed first CS attempt over 6 months ago. Retook mid-Oct. Permit link disappeared yesterday. Tried the Step 3 trick even though I'm still enrolled in medical school, it also says:

Step 2 CS
Most recent date taken: 10/***/2018
Number of attempts: 2
Pass/Fail Status: Pass

Hopefully the result will be good tomorrow? I have 4 more internal medicine interviews this cycle!!

Worked for me as well. Not to be a downer, but lets try to withold judgment unless someone's FCVS either shows "fail" or does not show up when it should. Good luck to all for the result tomorrow!

Why? Do you think "Pass" is the default haha
This is the Step 3 website, I think it's fairly reputable

Well we are already have one person state they have “undetermined “ as their result so it looks like they update the result. Seems reputable to me.
