If you had an extremely good Step 1 score and get an awesome step 2 CK you can apply, HOWEVER most hospitals demand, require and put as a interview criteria ECFMG certification, you wont be certified..I dont know anything about your USCE nor your specialty of choice nor your legal status etc.

Your chances by pure statistics are from slim to nil
OK, new question.
My step 2 CS result won't be on time for September 2013.
I'm yet to do USCE and by 2015 match I could get it done.
Let's say I take my chances and upload my application late in November or December, all residencies are taken and I don't get matched. Money wasted.
Do this harm my 2015 match application? Being repeat applicant I mean.
Thanks for your patience.
