You will have to take a gamble with your application. Being a semi-recent graduate is great, so you wouldn't really want to waste anymore time,but not having your CK done by September will be a problem for a lot of programs.

If you start applying in September, you run the risk of programs discounting you immediately without the CK score in hand. However, if you wait, you may lose out on the more competitive programs that will already be conducting interviews.

I suggest finding a few programs and calling them to see what they have to say about not having your CK.
