Embarrassed How late is late ?!

people use general term for late applicants and how their chances are getting lower !! so does anybody can help me with approximate estimate of how every week late will affect my application ??

how low will be my chance if I applied two weeks late, or one month late ?!

Your chances depend on your application and what programs you apply to. The only thing applying late does is it puts you behind on the applicant list. So say you apply to program x 2 weeks late, now 200 applicants applied before you the PC will screen the first 100 and take 20 interviews from there then they screen the next 100 and the previous 80 and make a list b for interviews now comes your turn by now the program already has first 40 candidates and now you are going to make it to list c or d. So if you apply really late chances are you are so far behind that many ppl have to cancel to give you a chance. I dont know if every uni does this but some programs I know residents have said it does make a difference how early you apply. Hope this helps
