If you apply in October you'll get less chances of being called for an interview.

However, I personally believe that next match interview calls will be significantly delayed because it's not only you, thousands others will have their CS results delayed.

Therefore, I think that residency programs will understand the situation and they'll delay looking up profiles to October.

So your chances will be less but not significantly less.

This same issue has been discussed here

@step_enhancer if you check the schedule frequently like every hr each day you will definitly find opened positions because many people will be canceling and rescheduling their exam date. Also the ECFMG usually keeps some available spots unavailable then it opens them to accomodate the AMGs. Just take any near date for now then when you find a nearer spot take it until you reach the most convenient date.
