You can try for it but make sure that you have all your results before September so that you are ECFMG certified when applying. Having half your results out, or not being certified would decrease your chances of getting more interviews.
If you apply on September 2013, you will be 2 years post grad at applying and 3 years post grad at the start of residency. Getting an extra year won't harm you that much, if you build up your CV with USCE or research and get great letters from them.
