Question Does it matter which board to apply for Step 3?

I am going to take Step 3 before PGY-1 training.
Here is the question:
If I apply to i.e. CT board (it does not require PGY-1 training prior taking the Step 3) will I be able to apply to other state boards for license after I pass the exam? Or I will need to get the CT license first?

Yes. Once you pass Step 3 in any State you will then be able to apply to any State Medical Boards licensing, it doesn't matter.
