Warning! When to Apply for the Match? Sept. 15th?

Hey guys, I've got a tricky question.

I am a European IMG 2009 grad., Green card holder, step 2ck (230) and CS passed, 4 strong US LoRs. I am planning to take my step 1 by the beginning the end of Sept/beginning of october. My goal is to get into Internal Medicine, affiliated programs, so I can do a fellowship after finished.

Should I apply for the Match in sept 15th ow/out my step 1 score, or by the time I get it in mid-end of october?

I'm afraid that if I apply now programs will not put me on hold and will get lots of rejections and. Any well founded opinions on this matter are very much appreciated.

Thank you for the great forum. Best of luck to you all.
