Will my application be discarded and marked as incomplete if i dont pay and release my transcript? Im asking because since I still dont have my step 2 score wont my application be incomplete whether i pay or not now regardless? I dont want programs to rule me out because of only one of my scores

Some variation of this question is asked every year. You are overthinking this. Some programs require step 2 to rank, but most will consider your application even if you don't have it when you apply.

Apply ASAP, always.

... and release your S2 score when available, and if you're really worried about it add a line at the end of your PS stating "I am taking S2 on xxx and expect a score by yyy"
