Default Step II CK Prep Duration

Hi I like to have your opinion/advise please.

Background: Carribbean Med School - Step I Score: 213 (I had some big time family issues going on during that time). I want to pursue Neurology and keep Family Medicine as second option. Otherwise, I am A student with honors.

Currenly, I am 4th year graduating in Jan, 2017 and will be applying for 2017 Match. Given that, If I take no breaks at all, I will be done with all my rotations by Aug 31, 2016. After that, I will be doing nothing except shadowing, research, etc till July 2017.

Given that, I have such long break after graduation, should I take ~3-4 months (Apr-Aug) to give my step II CK during my clinical rotations?
or would it seems bad for applications to take this long break?

Thank you for your replies.
