Default what does 2 years out of med school mean?


I have a question.
When residency programs write that IMG shouldn't be more than 2 years out of med school. Does it mean 2 years when applying or 2 years when starting the actual residency?

Because let's see:
I'll finish school in 2 years. Then I will have to get some USCE and LoR and everything. So I cannot apply that year. If I apply the year after that in the fall, the results are in march and you start residency in the summer after you apply, right? - will that be considered 1 or 2 years after med school? I am confused
