^ That's exactly what I want to do too. But the fact that my residency will start two years from now on if I apply the subsequent year is just not so calming!

I would suggest apply in 2015 and take your Step 3 meanwhile during your IVs. you can take Step 3 by october 2015 and update the programs. Since, your YOG is 2007 better not waste another year. but that's just my opinion.
