Hello everyone,

I'm IMG, studying for the USMLE steps and starting to apply for the exams - running against the time in order to apply this year.

My question maybe kind of stupid, but I really do not know.

What are the deadlines to do the first 3 exams (Step 1, 2CK, 2CS) in time to apply for the next match (and if successful, start residency on July 2019)?
That is, when should I have those 3 exams done? By mid August 2018?

Thank you for your time.

In order to be eligible for Match and SOAP 2019 you should have your exams done by Rank Order List deadline, February 2019.
Though you can apply to he programs even without your USMLE results, your application would not stand a chance. Programs are taking a risk interviewing an appllicant without all the scores passed. I would suggest to take at least 2 out of 3 USMLE exams by the time you plan to apply (September, October), and apply to more programs once you get all USMLEs done.
