Default Exam in August first week...late application and chances?

Hey there,

Unfortunately, I procrastinated a lot and ended up postponing my exam date to August 7. I am aware that my score won't be available till Sept 25. Will applying late (10 days) affect my chances of getting matched?

I'm applying in Pediatrics and my credentials till date are 240/CS pass/3 months USCE/2014 grad.
Thanks!

Could you please share the link where you got that information? I know that last year they posted about delay, is the same happening this year too?

I also booked my exam for August 12th. Are you sure there will be a delay this year?

Looking back at the past years' trends, I guess it would be the same way this year. My question is based on the chances, please don't consider that as valid information.
