Absolutely not! Have you seen the Applicant Guide on the wiki [1]? Pay particular attention there to the timeline — I believe that what's important is that you've submitted some code by the application deadline.

Even if you're not accepted or interested in participating in GSoC, you're welcome to contribute patches or feedback on bug reports and feature requests. You might refer again to the wiki [2] for more details.
