Default What are my chances to get a match if I apply after Oct 15th?

Hi,
I'm an IMG, graduate of 2012. I'll be getting my CK result on Oct 15, only then my application will be complete. I don't mind applying next year, but if i decide to apply this year, what are my chances of getting interviews?

Is it safe? Should I apply?

Really really need some good advices here!

Thanks!

If you don't mind applying next year, I would wait and apply next year. Because its not cheap to apply to programs, and in my opinion you'll be taking a risk applying this late. But if money is not an issue, hey what the hell, apply and find out... If it doesn't go your way, apply next year.

FYI.
It totally depends on your competency.
I know one guy personally, he applied 25 anesthesia programs at the end of October last year just with step1 score but he ended up getting 7 interviews from prestigious programs.

Why are you waiting until your scores to come back to apply?

Hi everyone ,
I am in a pickle here. I took CS n CK n have not taken step 1 yet! Can anyone who took the exam on saturday tell me whether they got their result by third wednesday?
I tried scheduling my exam sooner but there is no date avalaible until 10/18 ( sat), i really need the score latest by 11/5( wed).... I know they say if u take the exam between wed to fri it comes on the third wednesday n if u take on monday/tuesdayt comes on the fourth wednesday... There is no accurate data/ post about exam takers on saturdays...
Please someone who has taken either step 1 or CK on a Saturday please give me accurate info.. Im going crazy here.. Thanks a lot
