Help Getting Ready for Match 2014

Greetings and sincere prayers for everyone,

I am an IFMG and have recently registered at ECFMG. I am planning to take step 1 in March, 2013 and aiming for residency match in 2014. However, I need to know:

i) When should I apply for the USMLE step 2? (Should I before taking step 1 in March 2012, considering that I will apply for residency in 2014?

ii) Considering residency in 2014, ideally, what should be the application schedule for all exams? say, for example, Step 1 in March 2013, Step 2-CK in December, 2013 and step-2 CS in March 2014?

The bottom line is, can someone please advice me WHEN to APPLY / REGISTER for step 2 CK & CS, considering I need to apply for residency in 2014?

Will appreciate a genuinely helpful response from the bottom of my heart.

Warm regards,

Residency match and starting day of residency is different. If you want to apply for 2014 residency then you should finish all your step 1, step 2 ck, CS ( may-June; no exam), ECFMG certification by sept. 2013. Then if you get interviews and get selected you will start your residency by June or July of 2014.
Hope I answered ur question correctly.
