Default Honest opinion needed

Hi all. I'm currently studying for my Step 1 and need an honest opinion.

I'm a US IMG and just graduated from medical school in the Philippines this past April 2014. I took and passed my Step 2 CS. I have secured my 3 LOR, MSPE, and have a good idea for my personal statement. The only problem is I haven't taken my Step 1 or my Step 2 CK. I plan to take Step 1 in July and Step 2 CK in early September. Do you think it's still possible for me to apply for the match this year if I send in my application but with pending results for CK (and if God permits, passing and doing well on both?)

I am planning on applying to Psychiatry residency. Thank you for any comments or suggestions!
