Calendar CS Exam in July; Is that correct?

Hi I am an IMG from INDIA. I completed my step 1 on March 30th 2012 and waiting for the results. I came to know that step 2 CS exam pattern is going to be changed from JUNE20, 2012 onwards and also score report is also going to be delayed from this duration onwards. Now I am in a hurry to find a date for step 2 CS anywhere in U.S.A. I am planning to fly in next week 4 this purpose.

At this point I like to ask for the advise of anyone that whether my decision is correct or not. I am searching for exam dates but could find nowhere till now for MAY 2012. What is the percentage of chance for me to get the exam date within this period? can i get it before MAY 2012 or not? or shall I complete my step 2 CK here itself before august 2012 and then start 4 STEP 2 CS which is a new pattern of exam? if i do like this i cant apply for this year match. feeling very hectic to decide at this point.

plz any1 can advise me as soon as possible.

thanking you.!

The new pattern of the exam isnt exactly any different. It just makes you describe the reasoning behind why you made a particular diagnosis or workup. This is pretty much done on the current exam anyways, just not described.

I would suggest you take the pathway that doesnt require you to rush. As long as your application is complete by october, you are fine to go for the match.
