Default When to submit ERAS? PLEASE HELP!!

Hey everyone,
I'm an IMG and will be applying for family medicine residency this fall.

Step 1 score is 213(1st attempt).
Passed Step 2 CS(1st attempt)

I am trying to decided whether or not to take step 2 ck right now(August) or later because I haven't been doing all that well on NBMEs. I really don't want to risk failing Step 2 CK so I want to study a bit more before taking the real thing which would probably be around mid-late September.

How late can I submit my Step 2CK score and still have a fair chance of getting interviews?

I would apply late after getting the ck result rather than applying without ck and spending time asking the programs to look at your updated application after you get the result. Most places will not call IMGs without step 1 and 2ck scores. That's my personal view though.
