Default Best time for Step 3 prior to residency

Hi guys, I already dated my Step 2 CK and CS and wanted to ask for an advice about Step 3.

I want to take step 3 before the Match so I can be more competitive for the Match.

I was not sure when to do that:

- in August, so I will have my results until Sep. 1st to be put into my ERAS file, and the program directors will see it
(the disadvantage is that I will have to make one more trip for interviews later that year)

-in October, so I wont have to do 2 trips to US
(the disadvantage is that it will not be available for Program Directors at time, so it would not influence in to getting more invitations for interviews )
