hi, im a 4th year DO student, i did not take USMLE step 1 (kinda regreting it) but I want to apply to allopathic EM programs. Before rotations I wanted to do FP so i didnt think i needed USMLE. my question is if i take USMLE step 2 in early september, do I have to wait till i get my scores back (which is prob at least a month) before I apply to programs? also if I don't wait for scores to get back and apply early do I tell programs that I plan on taking USMLE step 2? thanks for your help.
