it is not ! but i know few ppl who got interviews who applied late.

If you want to,

Make sure you do enough research with application deadlines.

Use the forums to find applicants with similar profiles like yours and see where they got the interviews. it doesn't guarantee you an IV, but it will definitely tell you that you will pass the programs first filter and some one will actually look at your application.

being in your situation, i will apply to as many programs as i can.

There is no harm trying. If you are not short of cash, go ahead and apply.
You would never know unless you apply.
But keep in mind, probability of getting interviews is low.
But there is also a probability that you may get and get matched.

If u are short of cash.
wait another year, give step3 and then apply next match.
