Question Matching Advice Please!!!!!

Step 1 score 243 (pass first attempt)
CS pass first attempt
Step 2 ck for mid September
I can get LORs here in USA
Year of graduation 2009

Should I apply this year with only my step 1 score with the ck score and ECFMG certification pending????
Or should I apply next year???

If I apply this year should I submit my papers as soon as possible or wait until my ck score and ECFMG certification come back.???

THANKS

Apply next year. It's best to apply with a COMPLETE profile. You won't be ecfmg certified till October and that's really late for an img

Yes but I graduated in 2009 and for matching in 2015 I will have 6 years since graduation and most programs require 5 years or less.
