  So I would like to do Step 3 sometime in May/June.

I graduated med school last summer, IMG here in UK. I have my ECFMG certificate.

How many weeks will it take to sign up for it? Do I still have enough time to register for May/June?

Thanks!

  3 months? WTF? I got my permit for Step 3 in less then 2 weeks after applying for it.

  Hello Doctors,

Conneticut is the fastest! That is my experience...I applied to FSMB with this state and got my permit in 2-3 weeks.
You can still write the exam at Any Prometric center in Any State.
You do Not have to apply to Conneticut for Residency.
I remember checking this so many times last year b/c of confusion...i guess only difference is the 7 yrs cutoff this state has vs New York which has no cutoff but one has to be doing Residency if choosing New York.

Hope that helps...
I'm sure there are other states to apply under that are equally fast or faster...

All the Best...
