...id like to get started as soon as possible since ill be applying to a gazillion schools. 
hopefully, one of the admissions board of these schools will be smoking crack and admit me. 

also, are there different applications for PT/FT?

I saw apps change over around October. There usually isn't a seperate app for PT/FT. Most of the apps I filled out had a checkbox for PT. If you don't see it, make sure you call the school and ask.

I would suggest coming up with a general personal statement that can be sent to all schools.  Either way you will probably need a personal statement so get that out of the way.  If the school wants something specific you can usually tailor the statement to fit those needs
