Default Couples Match

Hi people! I just need some feedbacks regarding my situation.. I am a IMG, YOG 2011, Passed step 1 and CK, first attempt. my schedulle for CS is on Sept 9 yet. I know I wont be able to be certified by Sept 15.. My husband and I are applying for couples match (USC and GC holder), he might be certified by that time because he's done with the steps already. So I am bugged by a few questions..

1) Can we still do couples match even if one of us is not certified? Will it affect our application a lot?
2) What are my chances of still getting interviews eventhough I didnt get certified by sept 15?

To any kind soul out there, please enlighten meeeeee

Hi! I have the same question too. I am done with Steps 1 and 2 and will be giving CS next week. My results will come out by Oct - Nov, so will not be certified by Sept 15th. My husband though is certified.

Will that affect the number of interviews we get???
