Default When to take CK?!

Dear friends, I'd appreciate if somebody helps me with this.
I'm a foreign medical graduate (graduated in 2011) currently with F2 visa. I took step 1 and got 245 and planned to take cs in April 23rd. In order to apply for residency this year I have to take CK by July so I will have just 3 months for preparation. Meanwhile I'm supposed to have a 2-month rotation which makes the preparation harder. My goal is to get a 250+ score in CK. Assuming that I have zero publications and have 3 LORs from American board certified physicians do you think it is doable to apply this year?! I mean getting a 250+ in ck in 3 months while doing the rotations for 2 months and having only 1 month dedicated to CK only ...
