Question Should I apply this year?

I am a little confused...I have graduated in 2010 and I am done with my Step 1,,I plan to do step 2 in September/October and then CS in November.

I have heard that if ur an IMG u shud always be ECFMG certified before September one when the application process begins because if u apply without certification then your resume isn't even checked,,,is this true,,since I may get certified in Jan that too if I pass should I apply this year or not???
please help me um too confused since this involves a lot of money and time i want my chances if i apply without certification
