Step 3
Should we try to take step 3 before residency starts? If not when should we take it? Does it matter for fellowship applications?
Can't register until after you get your diploma. From Step 3 registration website of FSMB (

Do not apply for Step 3 until after the date of graduation on your medical school diploma. If you apply before you have graduated, your application will be cancelled and a portion of your fees will be forfeited.

It can take up to 12 weeks after you graduate for FSMB to verify your graduation with your medical school. Please keep this in mind when selecting your eligibility period, since free extensions of your chosen eligibility period are not provided. "
Pass it on your easiest intern year rotation. It requires minimal studying. No one cares what you get, just pass. Fellowships do not care.
