Question Can I make it to Match 2015

I am in final yr IMG. Next yr is my internship yr. I complete my internship in feb2015. Can I apply in sept 2013 in my internship yr so that I can match immediately after completion of my internship in march 2015? I had passed step 1 and planning to give step 2 ck and cs in sept 2013.

No you can not , You have to apply Sept 2014

but since you have no ECFMG certificate, no USCE you wont get interviews.
also if you just passed like 210 , you wont get nothing

so apply sept 2016.

I had passed step 1 with 230+. I will do elective and cs in march 2014 and I complete my internship in feb 2015. I wanted to apply in sept 2014 so that I can start my residency in June 2015 immediately after completing my internship. Is this possible?

Does it mean that we can apply even when we haven't graduated?

I mean can we apply for the match even without our diploma? I will graduate in July 2015. Can I apply for the match in Sep 2014 if I completed all the required exams by that time?

No one can tell you that for sure, but you have a nice step 1 score. Can you try getting some USCE before?
