Default shall I apply to more programs now?

I've already sent out my application on sept 17th with 180 programs....I was wonderingt if it is worth it to apply to more programs ( like 10 or 15 more) at this time to increase my chances or it's too late...any suggestions?

It seems like more than plenty since you probably already included all the programs that usually accept IMGs in that number. I would be optimistic and wait but it's up to you (I understand the panic). I've heard that this is the busiest point now of the interview season so they are dealing with piles of apps. I think many programs are still considering the ones that were submitted weeks earlier.
