I went through older threads too hehe. Last year all interview invitations had been sent by the 11th of January, and since this year interviews take place during the same period as last year I assume we should also expect invitations by the 12th of January. I think end of December is unlikely also because of holidays but who knows😀

Hi, I would only reflect my views/advices and that of some that I found helpful.
there is a lot to say about PS, first is to follow the guide given on the program webpage, to know what they're truly looking for in the PS.
Second is to know the general tips for a good PS, these may include avoiding general points, and being specific with regards to your interests etc. +/- to include any achievements or instances in your academic career that have shaped your interest and how you went about to indulge further in the field. Also, you should include some words on the program and what specifically was appealing to you about it (modules, Professors, etc).

There are so many good videos on YT, they help a lot. Try to find someone with a similar background to yours and know how they tailored their PS and take some notes.

Good luck !
