  Yes, right time to register for step 3 if you want to take it in March. Apply through CT, no requirements for residency before the exam. You can take your exam at your local prometric center.

  You can register for step 3 in some states that won't need residency training requirements (such as CT, CA etc.), and you can take your exams anywhere in the U.S. It has nothing to do with residency trainings, you are applying for step 3 exams, right? Eligibility starts right after your application is approved so if you register today, you will get your permit in about 10-14 days, then call a prometric center to book your exam.

  Hi honu, step 3 is different. They don't ask you to choose your 3 months eligibility period. It starts right after they approve your application. Eligibility period is 105 days.
