    Good luck.  I'll start writing my SOP fairly soon.  I started the application process by cleaning up and rewriting portions of my two writing samples which received outstanding grades, but I wanted them to be perfect.  It took me three weeks to edit and rewrite, edit and rewrite, and finally edit and rewrite.  They are finally ready to be read by the three professors that I've chosen in my MA program for final comments and approval--one of which was the original professor I wrote for the two papers.  I will do the same method with the SOP, probably writing at three or four iterations until I feel confident enough to submit to the same three professors for final approval.  I hope you have several professors that can give you guidance and constructive comments.

    I hope you're getting cat hugs too! That's the thing that gets me, just because you're an awesome candidate doesn't seem to guarantee admission - seems like there really is a lot of luck. I'm surprised at how lucky I've been since I really am not that great of a candidate on paper. Let's see how the rest turns out, but for now, have a great day!! It's finally stopped raining in my neck of CA so maybe I'll go outside..

    Status updates = when you're all caught up on the boards and have nothing new to add to the "waiting it out" thread
