yes you can apply, but most hospitals wont even give you an invitation if you are not ecfmg certificated, to be certificated you need step 1, 2 ck and cs scores, and 10 days later you get it.. so in order to have a chance in next years match ppl should take CS before july 11

State Board Sponsorship for Step 3 Discontinued
October 24, 2014
Filed under: Step 3
With the introduction of the restructured Step 3 examination in 2014, the USMLE program no longer requires examinees to apply for Step 3 under the eligibility requirements of a specific medical licensing authority.

All other Step 3 eligibility requirements (i.e., medical degree, passing Steps 1-2, ECFMG certification for IMGs) remain applicable, as do all other USMLE program requirements (e.g., no more than 6 attempts at a Step or a Step component).

yes of course, what you can do is pay fo CS NOW, and take in in mid may, and take CK by the first week of august! you will be on time for the application process.
Also what I do is study for both simultaneously, from 8-4 pm CK, 4-9 pm CS..
