As long as you select the eligibility state that does not require 1 year of post graduate training before taking STep 3

How long does it take to get a permit?

You should be getting a paper permit within 5-10 days by mail.

I hear some states require one year of clinical experience to sit the exam...what do I do?

Select the Licensing Authority state from the ones that do not require PGY-1. You can find a list in this forum. You can still schedule and take the test in any state, weven though the one you are sitting for the test does require PGY-1.
