Info Please someone help me! It's worth the hurry?

Hi!! First time that I post something on this forum!

I recently graduated from Med School from my home country (IMG) and I've just started to prepare for the USMLE step 1 exam. I plan to take the exam on January (2017) because I won't be able to take it before.

I know that maybe it's too soon to ask this, but I was wondering if I will be able to apply to residency next year (September) or should I wait till 2018?

It's just because I want to take the step 3 examination and do some USCE before doing it so. Maybe taking all the steps in 9 months (incluiding clinical rotations) is not worth the effort and the hurry.

I know that the ECFMG certification process takes time and it's indispensable to get it before you can even mention step 3.

So what do you think? I'll be very glad to receive any response, especially if you had a similar experience!

A couple of my friends completed step 1 and 2ck,cs in 8-10 months. It can be done, especially if you are able to give step 1 off in Jan 2017 and apply for cs earlier
