Default Should I apply this year or Next year?

With a step1 score of 257 and 3 months of electives cs and ck result in October, graduating in October. Do you guys think its a good idea to apply in November with complete application or in September with only step 1 and usce or its better to apply next year with step3 and some research also. BTW I am going for I'm.

Honestly, it depends on your budget. If you have the funds to participate in the 2016 Match and the supporting documents to start applying when your scores come in, I would suggest doing it.

The Sept. 15, 2015, application start date is a good place to start applying, but each program has its own deadline. If you feel your application is strong enough, you might not want to count yourself out for this year's Match.

Default Do yourself A FAVOR!!!

please do yourself a favor. APPLY on September 15th.
you will get interviews based on step 1.
but if you apply late.. your application will be buried and.. and interview process is all about hold a spot.. so do not let your spot go.. after you apply e mail coordinator let them know you have applied and waiting for ck cs result.. they'll keep your application ..
you have great score don't waste money by applying late don't waste time by applying next year.
