Help How to make it to Match 2014

hello dear friend
I need ur opinion about:
first I've passed ck since a year ago
and for some circumstances I delayed to study step 1
now i started step 1 and i need 5 months to be ready
if I want to undergo matching for 2014 what should I do
1. stop studying step 1 and go for cs ( bcoz it take time for the result) for about a month?? then return to step one then try to get the lors??
2. continue on step 1 till July (for example) then start cs for a month and undergo it by august and try to get lors??
3. forget about 2014 and wait til 2015??

BWT I'll get green card at march 2014.

please give me ur advices.

thanx

Go do the CS right now (it should take more than few weeks of prep).

Then get done with Step 1 at mid August (you can do it, still plenty of time).

Do not wait for 2015 match, the sooner the better even if it means no Green Card.
