Default What to do after AICM?

Hi, I will be doing my 5th semester (AICM) next January 2012 to April 2012.

I was wondering what is the ideal time to take my exam? June, July, August?
Also since my school requires 80 weeks of rotations, I should be done 1 year and half from August or September 2010 so I should be done in May/Apr 2014.

I was wondering what my timeline should be for Step 2 ck? Step 2 CS? I want to be able to apply for residency in 2014. For this I know I need to apply September-Dec 2013 (so while Im in rotations).

Basically I'm looking for a timeline if anyone has gone through it. I know that there will be hurdles like getting rotations back to back and stuff like that, but I'm hoping someone can give me an answer for an ideal world where everything works that way so that I can have basis for making my schedule!

Thank You!
