Default Match 2015: Cons of applying late

I will not be able to have my ecfmg certification ready by 15th Sep. As an img, how much at a disadvantage am I at, if I apply in first wk October? Would it be better if I applied next year on Sep 15th? Can any one help me out with this? I'm really confused.

I'm taking my CK on sep 2/3/4 depending on the date available. I'm done with 1 and CS. DO you think the CK result will come by 30th sep? Is it that big a deal if I upload everything in 1st week of october instead of 15th sep, when I won't have my result or certification.

I think there is a score report delay after July 28 th this time but it said after July 28th even if u give in September first week your score should be available by 24th of September. It might take a week for ECFMG certification and you will be ready by end of September with your application and I guess that's not too late to go. Try hard to apply this year . Don't postpone to next year. You still don't know what's out there for you and I would say not to miss a chance of luck.. So good luck.
