Question Would I be ready for 2015 match?

I am an IMG, who will soon be graduating in dec 2013. I haven't given any steps as yet. Is it still possible for me to give all the steps in time to apply for 2015 match? And if yes, then how should I go about it. I should mention that I have recently revised my basic sciences.

you would have to finish all your exam by september of 2014 to get into a residency program by year 2015 (thats how much i have understood of the process). so if you think you can give your step 1,step2 CK and CS in that time period then i dont see why you cant get in by 2015.

Are you fresh off of rotations? If so you might want to consider Step 2 CS first, then take Step 1. If it's been a few months then you should probably start with Step 1. Give yourself 12 months of dedicated study time with only 1 or 2 extended (one week) breaks. If you can do that you can take Step 1 in 12 months, then give yourself 1-2 months for CS, then 4-5 months for CK. That's the usual time needed, as long as you're focused. Hope that helps!
