No, don't bother. Better to wait a year and have those solid results that will attract attention. Without any Steps you are not ECFMG certified, you are a marginal candidate and you're results would make you too late for real consideration.

I have a similar situation, but I took my Step 1 (waiting for results) & I did 1 month observership. I'm planning to take Step 2 CK & CS before December 31st. What are my chances? should I wait another year or give it a shot?
