i am in the same situation man.
i think applying on the 3 rd should be safe... but this is only my thought .i am stiiil scared if we will be too late in applying by the 3 rd.but with an attempt on the transcript , no program will be willing to invite us for an interview.

i guess the moderators should to give us some suggestions.....
lets get in touch.. we can discuss wat programs we will be applying to.

ohhhkkkkkkkk!! in the same boat.
yeah sure lets get in touch. well have jst read here in this forum that i doesnt matter if we apply until first week of Oct as there will be no pre-matches offer and programs will b not in a hurry to send out interview calls..i am not sure what the exact scen will be but still i do believe we do have some chance with gud profile beside CS result and actually we can discuss about CS result during interview.
Well are u an IMG? in which faculty will u be applying to? IM?

For GS,
1) are your 3 mths in GS?
2) Do you have any GS US LORs?
3) Is your research experience in the US in GS?
3)Do you know any US GS's in academic progs, that are well known, who can pick up the phone and call on your behalf?

If your answers to 1, 2 & 3 are yes, then you do have a chance at a few prelim GS IVs. Most IMGs start off with prelim GS, really hard to match categorical, unless you have #4 working in your favor as well.
