Question Applying without CK Score

Hi guys!

I need your input on whether or not to apply on september 1st.

Im an IMG, graduating in september 2011. My step 1 score is 245, step 2 cs passed on first attempt and awaiting my step 2 CK results which will be out on September 28 (due to the delay in score reporting). I have 3 months of US clinical experience and previous research experience in my home school along with 2 US LORs.

Should I go ahead and apply on september 1st or wait till september 28th?

Thank you so much for your input!
