I wanted to submit my application to few more schools and I was wondering whether it would be worth it. Would it be too late in the cycle? I know some people aren't complete until the end of August. Would appreciate any feedback!

if you're complete by labor day, you're fine.

for future questions, may I recommend the search function? pretty sure there's another thread on the first page asking the same thing

Thanks! I looked on the first page really fast, but I guess I didn't see it!

I haven't completed most of my schools yet. From what I have read on SDN, we are still on time atm (being average being completed late Aug/early Sept).

I added five more schools this week after seeking advice from the folks here. From my research August applications are fairly average from a timing perspective.

Thank you. How do you see the "late rather than never" philosophy? My plan is to add the school by batches, filling out secondaries first with the priority schools (in-state). Hopefully the whole process will be done by mid-end Sept.

You chances get reduced as the cycle moves on, if for nothing else, as the finite number of interview slots get filled and rolling admissions spots get filled. How much and to what what extent is entirely speculative and is specific to candidate and school.
