Will applying "incomplete" shorten my chances and possibly compromise my 2015 application?
What about year of Graduation cutoff?
HELP!!

First of all you need to clear your exams , and then you would IMO even consider going into the match. And no i dont think applying in 2014 and testing would decrease your 2015 chances.
