Default Sincere advice needed

How much would it hurt if I apply on September 25th? If I was originally going to get 8 calls applying on 25th would cut that down to 4?

I ask this because I might have to postpone my CK due to unsatisfactory NBME scores.

Its really simple. Bad ck scores would hurt your application even more so take your time with ck and apply to programs that dont require ck on 15th and apply to others on 25th.
Hope this helps
