Default Does result in Oct hurt match chances?

Hi everyone. I gave my Step 1 in December and I'm preparing to give my CK in April and want to give my CS in June. I have taken the date for CS as June 26 for now tentatively. Some of my friends are hurrying with the CS before May 20 and then giving CK from US itself. I'm so confused if giving my exam in June and getting my results in October is going to hurt my residency chances.

I am from a middle class family and can't afford to waste money, so I want to get through all the Steps with good preparation and planning and do the best I can. Right now, I'm very confused if I should follow my friends' advice and give CS sooner by finding a date before May or stick to my own plan. :S. Please can anybody advise me what I should do so that it won't hurt my residency chances??

Also, can anyone tell me how much having my CS results delayed until October is going to affect my residency chances?? Does this decrease my residency chances by a lot?? Thank you.
