Info Electives - when to apply in internship

Hi,

I am an IMG and I've just completed 2 months of internship. I'll be finishing it by March 2017. I haven't written Step 1 yet but I plan on doing an elective in USA before my internship.
1) When should I apply if I'm not giving Step 1 by Mar 2017?
2) When should I apply if I plan to write Step 1 by Dec 2016?

Thanks.

The best things to do is to give your step 1 first. Once you get your scores you have loads of different oppurtunities. You can apply to many universities and get good LORs.
