Help My chances of matching this year

Hi,
This is the second time I am posting to this forum I really hope I get a reply this time.
I have done step 1 with a score of 99/241 and am now studying for step 2 CK..I am slow I think I won't be able to appear in exam before September and CS in November...I have got no electives this year.
If I apply this year I will only have my step 1 score with me on 1st Sept and my CK and CS scores will be received later by Dec, and if I apply next year I will have all the scores including step 3 score with me plus hopefully a 3 month externship..what's better?
Please suggest. I graduated in DEC 2009. I really want to know if there are residency programs that will consider me this yr?

...thanx

Your chances of getting interviews this year are very low.

It's better to apply next year with a complete profile.

I have discussed this in details here
