Default Personal statement upload time

Has anyone submitted a personal statement yet? I need to know if it becomes released and available right away, or it needs time to be uploaded like the LORs. I want to keep modifying and working on my PS until the moment I submit my application.

It is not released right away to the programs. You can add as many PS and modify each as many times as you want. You have to assign PS to each program you are applying. You can modify PS even after assigning them before submitting your application.

Thanks for the reply Saxo. I think I didn't make my question clear though. I mean for the recommendation letters, it usually takes a couple of days before they notify you that your LOR is ready and that you can assign it to the programs. Does uploading the PS go through the same process?

Oh. Nope it gets added the moment you save it and you can modify or delete it whenever you want.
