Question Apply on Sept 15 or Sept 26?

Im waiting for my Step 2CK result on Sept 26th....Im wondering if it is smarter to apply on Sept 15 without being ECFMG certified and without CK or should I wait till the end of Sept and get my CK results and then apply?? I heard that a lot of programs filter out many applications early on and if I apply later it will seriously affect my chances of getting interviews? Can anyone shed some light on this issue??

I'm getting my score back the same time too, but i'm sending in my application on the 15th. this is what my friend told me to do who matched last year, because he sent his application in late last year, and it was a disservice to the number of interviews he got. the sooner the programs know who you are, the better
