Default PTAL for PGY2

Hello everyone

I am an IMG who is going to apply for Anesthesia for march 2016 match. I was wondering if we don't have a PTAL, can we do the prelim year in some other state and then get PTAL by the time our PGY2 of Anesthesia starts (like June 2017)? Or do we need PTAL at the time of matching for the PGY2 (march 2016)?
Any help is much appreciated.
