Yes, you can apply. However, it obviously decreases your chances to match because you will compete against candidates who are completely certified.

If you do not have completely stellar things in your CV chances are very slim to get interviews. If you have personal contacts to a program (where you rotated, or know people) this is of course an exception.

I do not think that trying to apply will significantly lower your chances in the next season, some people think so, but this is based on rumors, without facts to back it up.

So yes, you can apply with only Step1 and CK, but you should have realistic expectations about the chance to succeed.
