Default Doubt: can I apply as a student using only STEP 1 even if I don't live in USA?

Hello you beautiful, beautiful people.
I'm currently on 4th out of 6 years of medical school on Brazil.
The traditional route would be wait until I graduate and become an IMG, but I wonder If there is a chance of applying before graduating, as americans do.
Thank you all and have a bright day.

No.

IMGs need to be ECFMG certified to be eligible to apply - which requires you to pass Step 1 + Step 2 CK + Step 2 CS.

Thank you.
I've heard before that it was possible, since I was not an international medical graduate (IMG) yet, but a student. I was studing the possibility of applying in the middle of the last year with step1 or step1 + 2ck + 2cs, without finishing medical school yet. So you don't think its possible? It's sad that we foreigners have to waste one year and a half after graduating =/

No you can not. You have to graduate already before the match
