  1. Hi fellow grads! I just finished writing my first SOP draft. It starts by saying that when I was little I already loved Computer Science, I taught myself how to program... Now that I am done, I am reading that many candidates start their SOP like that, making the SOP one more on the pile. From your experience or opinion, is it okay to star an SOP like this? Do you have better ideas or tips to start the SOP? Thank you!
  2. I am a engineering graduate who wants to apply for a masters in condensed matter physics. I have written a first draft of my SOP. I need some guidance regarding it. It would be great if someone can help me out regarding it. I can DM you if you are interested. Thanks in advance!
  3. I plan to apply for a scholarship and Could someone to help me for advice SOP? as below : My passion with data science started to grow when I studied Master’s degree. I found that big data is powerful tools which can help business with analyzing the mass of data and making decisions. With the ability to analyze new sources of data, businesses are able to analyze information immediately. Such first insight of how data is more essential for organization incited me to delve further into the field. Because of love in data over the years, I have been able to devote the time and ene
  4. Hi all, I'm revising my SoP for grad programs in Human-Computer Interaction and would be extremely grateful to get any feedback/criticism before submitting. Is there anyone in this field who can spare a few minutes going through my SoP and maybe suggesting a few things. More than happy to swap/review other statements- even if in different areas. Thanks in advance!
  5. Looking for someone who has been admitted into top HCI programs to review my SoP. Any feedback would be great!
  6. Hi Folks, I thought I might set up a place where we can request feedback from our peers should any of us be interested. My PI is being a bit slow in returning critique for mine, so I'd be up to doing a swap with a couple other users for some preliminary feedback. Let's rock it this cycle! 🤘
  7. HI ALL, JUST WANT TO ASK A SMALL QUESTION- HOW BAD IS IT TO EXCEED THE WORD LIMIT BY 80-100 WORDS? WOULD THEY JUST REJECT THE SOP? THIS IS SPECIFICALLY FOR CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY SOP'S. SOME DEPARTMENTS ALSO HAVE PERSONAL STATEMENTS SO IS IT POSSIBLE TO TALK ABOUT YOUR PRIOR RESEARCH EXPERIENCE THERE AND MAKE THE SOP JUST ABOUT YOUR PROPOSED WORK AND WHY U WANT TO APPLY TO SAID SCHOOL?
  8. Hi! This is my first posting on Gradcafe. This site has been a tremendous help for me to prepare for my application, so I want to first thank you guys for that I'm an international student applying for English PhD program for Fall 2021, and I know it's late to ask this, but I was wondering how specific my research interests should be in my SOP. In my 500-words SOP, I stated my area of interest and topics I would like to further explore by asking multiple questions I want to address in my PhD (which I think are a good fit with the faculty of the school I'm applying to), but no speci
  9. Hey guys! I've been working on my SOP for PhD (BA holder) in cultural anthropology for over a month now and the more I read it, the less I believe in it. I'm on a tight turn around (Dec 1st) and could really use some guidance! The one program requires a 500 word SOP/Personal statement and the other wants a 1000 SOP + 500 words on what I assume is a personal statement. If anyone would be wiling to take a look please send me a message and I'll get you what I have. Also, good luck to everyone out there who is nearing the end of their application process, you can do this (simultaneously
  10. Hi, I am applying to PhD programs in Biomedical Engineering. I want to cite my papers in my Statement of Purpose. This was advised by my current research advisor. How should I do so, I dont want to keep bothering him. Currently, I have: Then I have a references page at the bottom. Are there other ways to do so? Also I am not a first author on these papers, I am second and 4th for context. Thank you in advance.
  11. Hello folks, I’m looking for brutal critique to my PhD statement of purpose. Reason being: all family and friends are not in academia and think my SOP is grrreat, and I know there must be something to improve. Also imposter syndrome. Any takers? I’ll DM it, love yew.
  12. Hi everyone! I am getting ready to apply to MS programs in HCI and I am wondering if there is anyone who is willing to look at my SOP. I have been editing and reading over it for three weeks now and would love if someone can provide me with another set of eyes and outside perspective. Thanks so much!
  13. Hey, I'm applying to a design program at stanford and looking out for people who can read my essay and let me know their impression of how it looks. Open to SOP exchange and critique yours as well. Thanks
  14. If anyone here has applied to Penn State for their Ph.D. in English program and you know about this, please clarify for me. I would really appreciate it. Thanks! So on the English department's website, it says that a SOP (1-3 double-spaced pages) is required. However, when I went to start the application, the portal says that part of the documentation required is a personal statement with the following prompt: "Why do you want to pursue a higher degree in English studies at a time when the Liberal Arts are often less valued than science and technology?" This doesn't sound like a
  15. I really need some solid advice on my SOP. I don't really have anyone to review the essay, so it would be a big help. TIA One summer break, as I was sitting in my room watching my country’s election coverage, I realized that the coverage lacked any substantive information. As an avid follower of international politics, I expected the networks to cover information on policy proposals, the future impact of those policies, and most importantly, polling data. However, the information presented was very trivial. This realization inspired me to scour through swathes of data from a wide r
  16. Hi all, I am planning to apply to PhD in a couple of universities in the States and Canada in Spanish literature. I have written my first draft of SOP. Would anyone help me out by revising the same?

  18. Hi, all! I just wrote a statement of purpose for my application for Yale's Classical Art and Archaeology program and I wanted to know if anyone would be willing to look it over? I know it's a bit rough in places but I'm a bit stuck on knowing how/where to polish it. Thanks in advance!
  19. Hi all, I've been unable to find what the difference is between a Statement of Purpose (SOP) and a Statement of Interest / Statement of Research Interest. I've seen a lot on this forum re: SOPs but does anyone have any advice on writing a standout Statement of Interest? The program I am applying for is requesting a Statement of Interest but does not specify any further than a character limit. Thanks in advance!
  20. Hello, everyone! I'm currently in the process of writing my SOP. If anyone is able to review my SOP and offer suggestions/comments, please PM me. I'd appreciate it! Best, The Sailor Scholar
  21. This statement of purpose draft is in application for UC Denver Master of Architecture program. A critique would be appreciated. Criticism is not taken to heart negatively, I am looking to improve. *Questions: Do you suggest refraining from personal pronouns? Should italic typeface be removed?* Statement of Purpose (750-1000 words required, word count: 752) Entering undergraduate studies at the University of San Diego as an aspiring student of architecture, I naturally drew towards the history, theories, and conventions of architecture. Undergraduate Studies focused on the
  22. Hey Guys, I was planning on the April 2020 intake. I had applied to 5 - 7 colleges for the same. Half of the colleges are either closed or not taking admissions because of the current pandemic situation. As a my entire process got postponed. Now i have a lot of time on my hands, so i decided to make use of it in some productive way. With that in mind, i started to rework on my Statement of Purpose. I had found it hard to make one earlier too and with no good samples for reference it was quiet a lengthy process. But this time around, after going through many many sample SOP's i found a pre
  23. Willing to swap or help with yours if you help with mine! Attending the University of North Carolina at ______ I began my undergraduate career with the intention of obtaining a degree in Psychology. This decision was based on my general interest in the brain and human behavior. After completing my second year I decided to double major in Biology due to my desire to understand the brain at its’ most fundamental level. As I advanced through my degrees and questioned what type of career I would like to pursue I became increasingly interested in the experimental side of neuroscience. I was pa
  24. I am feeling nervous and was wondering if anyone would be willing to do a quick once over of my SOP that I have to submit tonight?
  25. Hello, although the deadlines are approaching, I still want to ask if there are anyone available to look at my SOP for Comparative Literature? Thank you so much in advance!!!
