I guess you mean 2013 match (which starts September 2012 until March 2013)

So the date is May 19th, 2012 is the last date.

Any date after that, you'll get your score report on October 3rd 2012 which means your chances of getting interviews are less.

May 19th, 2012 is also the last date before the new changes to the CS exam implemented.

Matching season continues until January 2013.
Theoretically speaking. If you get your Step 2 CS results by January 2013, you can still participates in the match.
But am talking about practical reasons. Most residency programs will stop looking for candidates by September 2012 (specially for IMGs), so this means that if you don't get your results by September 2012, your chances of getting interviews are less (but not zero).
