1.Do I have the sufficient time to crack the same. or shall I plan for 2017(which I feel very difficult for me to do).
2.If at all you feel yes what should be my planning regarding taking step and all.
3..My current plan is to give step1 by december 3 wk,2014..and doing observership in feb,march,april and give step cs by april 15 or so(provided I get VISA).COME BACK TO India and give step 2 ck in JULY 15 or so and apply for ECFMG certification in august 15 once the result of step 2ck comes...

It is workable.
But the question is,how well ur prepared for step 1?
Are those obsereverships ur talking about confirmed?
Keep aside atleast 3-4 months of preparation for CK.

Yes. Step 2 CS takes the most. Like 2-3 months. ECFMG always updates its score reporting schedule. So check that when you apply for your step 2 CS to plan accordingly.

You can fast track the 3 tests if you stop working and only focus in studying.

Apply for observership and get it confirmed soon,getting observership in a university hospital,is not easy.
