Default to apply this year or next? please need advice

step one - 84 (1st attempt)
cs - passed (on second attempt)
ck- taking it between last week of september to first week of october.
yog. 2005
us born citizen
so my ck result will be out at the earliest oct 19 to 26.

i have 4 us lors.. did observerships at private clinics..

my question is if i apply this year or wait till next year? and if i apply , when do i apply. september 1 or end of september once test is taken pending results or when i have all scores in hand.. all my other documents are sent and my transcripts are all verified.. so once my ck result comes in i should be ecfmg certified with no hassles of getting the extra paperwork verified from my medical school....if i push it till next year, it just adds on one more year of being out, but since my ck scores comes in late my chances decrease.. confused how to move forward here...i am planning to apply wide in family med and psych.. so could you please give me your advice how to proceed.. also what are my chances, even if they are slim of matching this year.
