Info Am I on time for USCE?

Hello everybody!
I will be starting my usmle journey after a month. I will also be starting my 5th (out of 6) year of medical school. Since i will deal with school and usmle at the same time i think i'd go for the exam around may. Since I don't have much left on my medical education (no more eligible for electives), my question is:
Can I do an elective during august or June 2017 if i take my step 1 exam in may?
I've read that you should apply some months prior but i just wanted to hear your 2 cents on this.

You could try, not impossible. Harvard, Cleveland Clinic, Denver (would have to email the coordinators), Florida University would all consider your application.

Apply to Yale right now, Cornell and NIH if you have the grades (possibilily a waste of money regardless though, I myself didn't bother)! FIU acceptance would be nice to have as a backup plan as well. Good luck!

Edited: By the way, an elective in September would still yield you a LOR for the match. Furthermore, electives later on would allow you to get LOR in case you don't match in 2018.
