Default question about applying to programs with H-1 visa sponsorship

Hi everyone.
I am not going to be eligible to write step3 until around around Jan-Feb 2014 because I will get my medical school diploma in end of this year.
Should I apply to programs that offer H1B visa only even though I will not be taking step 3 when I apply to the programs or it is a waste of money?

I'm not an expert in H1B visas. But I heard there is a certain time where programs need your step 3 for them to sponsor you an H1B. I think it's before ROL on Feb or March? I think my friends who are going for H1B last match were studying for step 3 last Dec and they probably took it Jan. I'm not sure though...
