  2. 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!
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. 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!!!
  11. Hi all, I'm applying for a PhD in the biomedical sciences at Oxford. I've got some SOP guidelines from them which is really helpful. I'm just having some difficulty sticking to the word limit and realise that my research descriptions are too long. I would appreciate another person's perspective on what's is deemed as necessary and whats not. Thanks and happy new year!

  13. Hello! I am applying for statistics M.Sc programs. Would anyone be willing to look over my statement of purpose? If you are, please PM me!
  14. Hello,, I'm trying to apply for International Relations MA programs in the UK and I've wrote my first draft on Personal Statement. English isn't my first language so I feel there are a lot of grammatical mistakes and the context doesn't seem strong enough. Please look over my SOP and give me feedback/advice. Thank you in advance!! ________________________________________________________________________ Personal Statement China-US Trade War, Brexit and the EU, North Korea-US summit, and the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong.

  15. I'm a student from Mexico, applying to a PhD program in Mathematics. The GRE Subject test is not required, but strongly recommended. Unfortunately, the test is only offered in two cities of my country and it was impossible for me to travel to take it. On the other hand, I have a really good GPA and a pretty good score on the GRE General Test (more widely available). My question is, should I address my lack of GRE Subject test score in my SOP? I feel like I should explain why I didn't take it, but I don't see where it is appropriate. Maybe in the 'supplemental documents' section? Th
  16. Hello everyone! I am currently applying for immunology Ph.D. programs. Would anyone be willing to look over my statement of purpose? If you are please PM me! Thank you for all of your help!!
  17. This is the SOP I wrote for the LBJ School, any feedback is welcomed - please! Running for public office has always been a dream of mine, for as long as I can remember. As I have grown older, the reasoning behind the choice has changed, but my motivation and drive have remained the same. Career politicians, on both sides of the aisle, are so out-of-touch with the average American; Congress spends weeks, months, and multiple sessions in stalemate due to the hyper-partisan climate while American families are struggling due to an ongoing Trade War, senseless gun violence, environmental issue
  18. Hello everyone, Here is my SOP for Physics PhD. programs. Please take a look and give me some feedback. Also, recommendations and suggestions for my target grad schools would be really helpful. Some details about me: GRE general: 153 V, 157 Q, AWA: 4; TOEFL: 98/120; GPA : 3.7/4; GRE physics: results yet to be declared. I plan to specialize in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics, particularly in Topological Insulators. I would like to appreciate for your help, in advance. Thank you very much !! I had an influencing fascination towards science right
  19. Hi guys, here is my personal statement for a Chemistry PhD. program. Please take a look and give me some feedback. I appreciate any help! I can also look at yours and give feedback if you wish. Thanks!!!! A little bit about my application: GPA: 3.70, major GPA: 3.75. GRE general: 150 V, 165 Q. Although my GRE is not that high, my research professor told me to aim to top inorganic chemistry programs because of my strong research experience and the fact that English is not my first language + I take >17hrs every semester since I transferred to my current university in juni
  20. Hi all, I am applying for a sociology PhD somewhere in North America, and have been revising my SoP for some time. My main interest is in social stratification especially in occupation and employment market; and gender inequality in employment. I read several posts suggesting that I need to write more about my research interest and future plans in the SoP, so I focus heavily on them in this version. I am not sure if they are clear enough, and if I should introduce more on my hard skills or research assistance work that I have done. I am posting the SoP for Princeton which I tailored for some
  21. Hi, everyone. I'm looking to improve my SOP for the above mentioned program. Non-native speaker here, so my SOP doesn't look up to the mark here. Hopefully you guys can suggest something? Please let me know if you can take out the time - I'll DM you my SOP for review. Thanks!

    SOP help

    Hello! I am a student from abroad looking to apply for Art History and Curatorial Master's in the UK and in New York. All of them require a statement of purpose, which is something unusual where I come from, so I don't really know how to go about it, especially since I've been reading that it can be a make or break part of the application. I was wondering if there might be someone willing to share the SOP's that got you accepted into MA programs, just so that I can get the gist on what admission's officers are looking for. I have read a lot of mixed advice online, but I would like
  24. “A picture is worth a thousand words”, a well-known adage that stands true through time. Even before we could speak, we used graphics to communicate. Today, we are surrounded by designs of all kinds- from the home screen on our mobile phones to the big billboards out on the streets, graphics are a timeless medium to communicate. As a school boy, I had always loved to sketch cartoon characters. A Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering gave me exposure to machines of different shapes and sizes. I was intrigued by how design made even the most complex machines easy to use. These experiences
  25. One of the hardest parts about grad school applications is writing your statement of purpose (SOP). When I was working on mine last year, I had no idea where to start. So, instead of Googling it and ending up with a generic SOP, I attended three different open houses and asked a lot of questions to find out what schools really look for. In the end, the answer was pretty simple: Schools want to know that you can be successful academically, even when faced with obstacles. With that in mind, I made a list of the challenges I faced throughout graduate studies and picked the ones I thought wou
