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.
