Default Late Application; CK score avail Mid-Oct; FM

Hi,

I was hoping some kind generous soul out here could help me with my dilemma. I want to know what are my chances of getting interviews if my step 2 ck score is to be release mid-oct. I don't know whether I should apply or wait for my score to come in. Please see below for my cred list:

Applying for Family med 2017
Step 1: 214 (1st attempt)
Step 2CK: Pending
Step 2CS: Pass (1st attempt)
Caribbean school - Completing my 4th year around Jan 2017
USCE: 2 years
LOR's: 3 total;
- Family Medicine program director at a teaching hospital
- OB/GYN
- Medical director of pediatrics
Publications: None

I'm losing sleep over this Can someone please guide me through this? I will be so grateful. Thank you.

My 2 cents.
Apply to FM programs now which require only step 1.
After release of step 2 ck, apply to the rest of your list and update programs you have applied earlier.

Chances of getting interviews with only step 1 (for IMGs), is less.
