Default Ideal time for step 3

I heard ideally IMGs should have results of step 3 before applying for the match. But this is not possible for me. If i get my CS result on 14th August then how much time is required for ECFMG certification then after applying for step 3 waiting for scheduling permit?
what is the earliest possible time for this for me?

thanks and waiting for response
