I am done with my step 1 scoring 257, cs is on 31st August. I have 4 months of clinical electives some good LORs. I will be graduating in Nov. 2015.
Do you think it will be a good idea to apply with only step 1 score in hand and then I will have my cs result by the time of interview. And will have my ck result before match.

Or should I wait? Or should I apply to prelim IM programs this year?

Thank you so much guys.

A lot depends on what specialty you are applying to and if you need a visa. Your step 1 score is great, but if you need a visa and are a foreign grad (caribbean/euro/asia), you likely won't get a huge number of invites compared to if you had all three steps (1/2ck/2cs) in hand. If you have money to burn, go for it and apply this year (this way you will also have most of your letters uploaded if you are going to use the same ones) but your best odds are probably next year. Good luck
