Yes you need to be ECFMG certified to be able to apply for STEP 3.and you have to pass CS for certification.The certificate usually comes 2 weeks after CS pass result.For CS exam score release you can check ECFMG web site. It takes a long time,longer than CK or step 1.
good luck

I did kaplan qbank,UW and First Aid,It was enough for score is not a perfect one (82/200),but to be honest I don't care.I just wanna to get rid of this torture.The only thing I did UW CSS 4-5 times each case,very very helpful.Now i just happy I am done with all this steps.i am out of practice more then 10years and i am not in residency yet.So i think you will be able to do it too.GOOD LUCK
