Chances of getting accepted after a soft deadline?

A deadline for one of the programs that I am interested in has already passed but I did not take the gre yet so I could not apply. I have since taken the gre but I would still like to apply to this school. I was wondering what my chances are of even getting my application looked at since the deadline has passed but the program has a soft deadline so they will still take applications until the program fills up. Will it be a waste of money to even try to apply to this school?

I say go for it. I don't know about your chances, but if they have a soft deadline, they have it for a reason and will most likely still consider your application. If they weren't going to accept anyone who applied after the soft deadline, they wouldn't have it there in the first place. :)
