Question CS October Results?

I'm an IMG trying to get in the 2014 Match. I've completed Step 2 CK so far. I will be taking Step 1 before the end of July. However, Step 2 CS scheduling is not open again until Jul 15th, 2013 which will delay my results to mid October 2013. I read that the 2014 Main Residency Match begins on Sep 15th, 2013. So I will only have Step 2 CK and Step 1 results in time for application.

How badly will this set me back in terms of getting ECFMG certified and interview calls for the 2014 Match? Is this going to be a major disadvantage and not make me eligible to match until 2015?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

it depends on your scores. if you have 240+ than yes high chance, if not medium chance, if you failed a step no chance or very slim.

Your chances get extremely less if you are not ready by late September.

See this poll
The reason why IMGs did not match?

Think about it. Thousands of people are going to apply with complete scores. Most of them have GC or are citizens. Why should a program consider someone without a complete profile over someone with a complete profile? If you get your results on October 15, it will take at least 2 weeks to get it uploaded on ERAS. Therefore you won't have a complete application till November 1st. Which is late. Moreover, if you check FREIDA, you will see that most programs require at least step1 and step 2cs scores. So even if you apply with the most awesome step 1 and step 2ck scores, you will eventually get filtered out by majority of programs.

However nothing is impossible. And don't underestimate the power of connections.
