There is very little time left for student application -- only 2 days.
In general, by now you should have a specific idea that you want to work on, it doesn't have to be your own, there are many ideas for potential GSoC projects at http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/SummerOfCode .
You need to be realistic about your experience in compiler development and GCC development. It is better to apply for an easier/smaller project and successfully finish it, than to work on a complicated project and not get it done.
Finally, please don't cross-post to several lists, email@example.com is the correct list for development discussions (with firstname.lastname@example.org being the list for discussion of specific patches).
