Help Matching timeline and some other newbie questions

Sorry if my Q seems dumb! but I don't know the rules of residency in USA!

-if somebody submit his application to ECFMG at last deadline day I mean in FEB then he must wait to get interview? has he any chance?
-and if somebody doesn't get any interview it means that he won't be matched to anything?
-what fields and sates usually won't filled full and will be presented in post match?

Actually I hope to pass my step2 ck-cs in DEC 2011 and I just have my step1 score by late Sept 2011, I want to know if I have any chance even 1 % to participate in 2012 match? and what is deadline for USMLE score reporting to ECFMG?

Thanks a lot

No chance to get an interview by that time.
The latest possilbe time for IMGs to apply is late October, even in late October the chances are much less than early September.

Yes. If you don't get interveiw invitation, programs will NOT rank you in the match.

As I told you before, if you don't apply in October, maximum November, you won't have any chance for the 2012 Match. Your only remaining chance will be the SOAP (post-match).

The connection can get you interviews, but ultimately if you are not ECFMG certified by the time of ranking (which is February) then they will not rank no matter how strong is your connection.
