Question Can I apply now?

I have passed step 1 (241) & CS(first attempt). Awaiting CK result, which I due on 18th or 25th of this month. YOG: Dec 2009. IMG. No green card. I have MSPE & a few LORs from my country physicians (India)

Initially I thought I would take up step 3, do some USCE & apply for next year. But I am giving it a consideration to apply for this year itself, as it would potentially save me a year. I heard most of the programs are nearing the completion of interview process.

Do you advice me to give it a shot this year?

What are my chances of getting a match this year, if I start the application process now?

Any input will be appreciated
