Yes - we're about to hit the midpoint of GSoC - applications were done months
ago, selections made already, and students should be making good progress by

The X.Org Foundation does offer a more flexible timeline for EVoC projects,
which can include Mesa work, but it's also a bit late if someone was applying
for EVoC for the summer now, as the typical turnaround of a month to put
together an application and get it approved would not leave much time left to
do the work before the next school term begins in most places.  (It's not
impossible to apply still, if your next school term doesn't start until later
in the year, just less likely for most students to make the schedule work.)

(And a month may be on the short side if you aren't already familiar with Mesa,
  to take into account learning enough about the project to be able to determine
  what a reasonable proposal could cover in the time alloted and do the usual
  submission of a patch or two first to show you have enough skills with the
  tools, code, & programming language to make a start at it.  People already
  working with the code base have less to learn and work through there than
  those coming at it for the first time.)
