SCREW IT!
If you applied to or interviewed at places you're calling to scramble at, they'll already have your statement.

However, the CAF and/or your resume will be the big hitters. Places will tell you what they want to be faxed to them. My program got 140 calls last year, so there wasn't much time to read a statement.

Apollyon, what do you mean by "scramble-apropos"?

should we add something like: "in conclusion, i look forward to scrambling into your fine program after not being able to match at it or at my other 15 choices."?

(i ask seriously.)

Essentially, yes - in that your PS talks about applying during the scramble, versus "I've applied to your program, because it individually provides all of the elements I have been expecting in a training program".

Of course, if you put a line like "not being able to match at it or at my other 15 choices", well, you need some strategy advice!
