I think that you are showing concern and were honest about your time schedule 
is already a plus in my book. Now it remains to be seen whether you can present 
a solid plan as to how you will be able to still deliver on your project. If 
your project proposal is sound, and you can present a working plan which is 
precise enough to make some educated guess at your chances to complete it with 
regards to your time schedule, then I think your proposal could still have very 
good chances. I would encourage you to make your application and start 
discussing it with the Haiku mentors. You can only gain by doing this.

Best regards,
-Stephan
