that's a good question...but do u really want to be matched with step 1 scores only? Surely it's the most important score in the game...but for us IMGs, i still think it is better to have step2ck and cs in ur hands (at least ck) before applying

its true that you can apply like it, infact a friend of mine did it as well but he got only one interview call and it was the same hospital where he was doing his research and didn't get call from any other hospital so the chances that you will get a call are very low but its possible, but as we know that all the application fees are not so cheap, therefore i wouldn't apply just on step 1 score
