I do know this but I was just saying to the OP that she isn't actually that late since the deadline is like 3 months away. I wasn't saying it is ok to leave it because the deadline is January, the way I meant to say it was your not that late considering the deadline isn't until january and there are a lot of people who will be leaving it to the last minute.

Sorry if I confused you, my head was destroyed from trying to write my own personal statement.
