  1. thanks to everyone who helped me with my previous SOP. This SOP is for another program at a different university. It needs to be a video so its a bit different. I have made a rough draft so people could give me some comments I'd really appreciate it. thanks What are your educational and career goals? How does this program meet those goals? What qualities and skills do you have to offer the program and the field of mental health? How does your background (education or professional experience) make you the best candidate for this program? 5 minutes
  2. New version here. 1. Why GSU? 2. What experiences have brought you to the field you are interested in? 3. Where do you see yourself in 5 years in the field? 4. What knowledge/expertise/skills do you bring to the profession? Many times in my life I have found myself lost and confused, suffering alone with two unwelcome friends depression and anxiety. It is this personal experience and my volunteer work that have shown me that I am not alone and that far too many people struggle with their mental health in silence without anyone to
  3. thanks everyone for the review. On my previous statement i had been much more brief about my own personal struggles which quite honestly i still struggle with. Someone on reddit had suggested to go more in depth about my own struggles. I always have a hard time with actual concrete examples, there just isnt anything very concrete i can talk about. I will follow everyones tips and try to post a new updated version later today. thanks
  4. 1. Why GSU? 2. What experiences have brought you to the field you are interested in? 3. Where do you see yourself in 5 years in the field? 4. What knowledge/expertise/skills do you bring to the profession? My interest in counseling grows out of my own experiences with emotional distress. I have suffered from anxiety and depression since childhood. The anxiety and depression have often made it difficult to even leave the house or engage with the world. It can be difficult sometimes to even go to the supermarket without the worry that something might happen to you

  6. 1. Why GSU? 2. What experiences have brought you to the field you are interested in? 3. Where do you see yourself in 5 years in the field? 4. What knowledge/expertise/skills do you bring to the profession? My interest in counseling grows out of my own experiences with emotional distress. My own mental distress has forced me to take time to listen to other people instead of passing quick judgment. The interaction between people and society is so complex that we often use mental shortcuts instead of taking the time to understand and comprehend someone’s struggles
  7. Statement of Purpose I am applying to San Francisco State University, Masters of Art in Communication studies program because I would be an excellent fit for your program. The strong emphasis given to social justice as a way to honor unheard voices is something that speaks to me. Also, I hope to work with Dr. Wingard, an expert in the field of communications and linguistics. My main interest in communications centers on cultural differences and how they affect communication. As human beings we tend to assume that everyone carries the same socio-linguistic background that we do, in reality th
  8. Statement of Purpose I am applying to San Francisco State University, Masters of Art in Communication studies program because I would be an excellent fit for your program. The strong emphasis given to social justice and the opportunity to honor unheard voices is something that speaks to me particularly because of my background. Additionally, the opportunity to work with professors like Dr. Wingard would be an incredible opportunity to work with an expert in the field. My main interest in communications revolves around the cultural differences and how they affect communication. As human being
  9. Please take a look at my statement of purpose and let me know how i can improve it. Thanks! I am applying to San Francisco State’s Masters of Science in Computer Science program. I would be an excellent fit for your Master’s program because of your strong support of minorities and because of the interdisciplinary approach taken. I am particularly interested in the way in which the brain processes information especially in relation to learning and how this is similar to the way in which a computer learns. Be furthering investigating the similarities between the brain and computer’s we ca
