    hey all...
    i was wondering if all step scores along with ecfmg certification need to be taken care of prior to a program placing you on their rank order list. i have all in besides step2ck, so do i need to rush it to have the score in before end of feb (deadline for rank order list), should i contact individual programs and ask, or will they rank me based on what they have.
    would they rank one based on step 1 alone?

    your feedback is greatly appreciated!
    thanks bunches!

    Most programs require IMGs to be certified b4 the rank order list, so they will probably not rank you. And 1 more thing, NRMP requires you to be certified by rank order list or they withdraw you. Check the nrmp site, to confirm.

    NRMP does NOT require you to be ECFMG certified by the ROL deadline.

    You only have to have completed all the exams toward being certified by that date.

    As to whether or not programs require it, that is an entirely different matter ad will depend on the program.
