  Haha oh, i was so excited. You should be okay to apply without CS, its a completely useless exam and programs really dont care.

I have not

  My prayers and good wishes are with you! Of course, it is always good to have a complete application so just continue to look for dates every few minutes because there will be cancellations. But dont stress out if you cant. You have two options

1) Submit your incomplete applciation and add in that you have booked your CS date and will update it as the results come

2) Wait till you get results of your CS and then apply.

Ultimately the choice is up to you

  It is always required for IMGs to have all the scores with you while applying for the match, but you apply for the programs with the scores you have and later update the programs with the CS exam.

  Most programs require both IMG's and AMG's pass CS prior to January 1st.
