Calendar Applying for 2014 match instead of 2013

I plan to apply for 2013 Match after giving all steps (1,ck,cs); cleared step 1 & ck, result of cs awaited; 1month USCE.

If in case I don't get matched this year or in case I'm matched in a programme I don't want to join, I'm willing to do some research work/ get more USCE and apply for Match 2014. I also plan to give Step 3 during that time.

Will applying for the 2013 match and not taking up a programme/ not getting matched at all affect my application for the 2014 match.

I am keen to get into a good programme and don't mind prolonging my application for a year...I wish to apply for the 2013 match so as to get some experience in facing interviews etc. Is it worth the shot??

I would say thats a very expensive way to gain interview experience. If you match somewhere, id say take the spot. Cause matching in the subsequent years isnt going to get any easier.
