Default step 3 before applying for matching?

I'm seeing many threads as step 3 can be completed after joining residency,
but i'm really killing myself to finish it before i apply for matching, i'm planning
to take step 1 itself in june'2013 only, so what i would like to know is will completing step 3 before applying for matching can in anyway make my chances really great or it's not that significant? if i know i will concentrate on step 1 and step 2 rather than rushing myself.

FYI - for me visa is not a issue, my husband is working in US & i'm planning
to join him by april, but if the step 3 is going to really dent my chances, i'm
thinking of really quitting USMLE, if i cant make it for 2015 batch.

I would really appreciate your response

sooooooooooooooooo confused
