B1 Visa Help with queries regarding B1/B2 visa


I got done last month with my Step 1 (208/79). I have scheduled my CK for April and CS for May. I want to go ahead and apply for the visa as I have heard it can take a long time.

Since I haven't taken my CK yet, is it risky to apply for the tourist visa? And if it is risky, should I even mention that I am going there for my CS or not?

Another is that I have applied for the Diversity Visa. I just read that they won't give me a tourist visa if they find that out. What should be done? I really need this visa since I am also supposed to get married in May (in US).
