No one can really tell you that, it depends on how long it takes for your application to be processed. Also, do you already have a valid form 186 on file?
It is usually only a few weeks, but for me it took about six months because my school messed up with the form 186... (no one from my school takes the USMLE).
So, if you already have a valid form 186 you should be fine, but just to make sure you might want to apply soon. Just remember once you get your scheduling permit it is only valid for one year!

Yes you can still apply. But start the process as soon as possible.

I would start the process as soon as possible.
Start by applying to ECFMG and paying the $60, then apply for Step 2 CS so you can get the form 186 and bring it to your med school!
Don't wait too long just to make sure in case there are any delays.
