Applying to additional MD/PhD programs late, good idea?

Applying to MD/PhD programs this cycle (2017-2018). Applied to 22 schools, mostly MSTP. In retrospect maybe should have applied more broadly. 10 secondaries submitted in July and 12 submitted in August. Haven't received any interviews yet. Considering adding some non MSTP schools to my AMCAS now. Unfortunately "now" is early September which would be considered pretty late to any school. Would it be worth doing this or would it be a waste of money/time?

Also open to suggestions on non-MSTP funded MD/PhD programs I might want to look at. Thanks!
