  3. Hi! I have been writing SOPs for biological science PhD programs, while most of them have a clear upper limit in the length of the SOP (with a range of 500-3000), one of my programs does not state a maximum length. I'm wondering what an optimal length would look like for adcoms, somewhere around 1000? To have adequate details on my past experiences but hopefully not too long to bore the readers. Any suggestions would be very welcome!

    Your experiences look really good and well rounded! Unfortunately I'm in a very different field so I can't contribute too much to school choice. Also by physics 1 do you mean PHYS 101 and Ragan lmao I'm also at McGill. I haven't seen him around after first year except for last week when I saw him trip on the pavement in front of McLennan/bronfman.
