  1. I'm currently applying to some School Psychology Ed.S/MS programs and need advice on my statement of purpose. The schools I'm applying to share the same university application which asks for a broad statement of purpose, so all my schools will be reading this same SOP. The problem is I don't have experience working in a research lab so I'm not sure if I still have to address my research interests in my SOP if I don't have any direct experience... I'm writing about my experiences as a teacher and instructional aide (did field work for this through an undergraduate course) instead. Should I still mention some broad research interests related to school psych or should I just focus on what I want to do career wise? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! The prompt instructions are "Since your statement of purpose is sent to all the programs you apply to, keep it general. If you plan to apply to only one program, you should still keep your statement general in case you later apply to additional programs. Write a brief statement of purpose describing reason(s) for pursuing graduate or post baccalaureate study. Include any additional information concerning your preparation that is pertinent to the objective specified"
