Hi guys
I'm an IMG with a valid visa. I just started studying for Step 1 and plan to give it in July. I will be giving CS in March also. I will then give CK in November. Is it smarter to apply for a match in 2012 or wait, give more time to the exams, and get some US externships and LORs and apply in 2013? I only have one US LOR. Is 5 months enough to score a 99 on step 1? and Will I be considered for competitive programs during the match if i apply in 2012?......and most importantly WHEN IS THE LATEST I CAN GIVE Step 2 CK for a good chance in the 2012 match?!!
Thanks in advance!!

Probably it's better to wait until 2013 season, so that you take your time to get 99 in the steps and to get more LoRs so that you apply with full potential.
