  1. Hi guys! I am applying for the MAIR program of SAIS and god is it confusing! Would really love some tips/ help from fellow applicants/ current students especially regarding their essays and LORs. They only need 2 LORs and I am confused whether I should give both academic (one vouching for my policy skills and another psychology) or one professional as well. I have highlighted my psycho-political skills quite a bit and also tech so I am confused! help a girl out 😢
  2. (A word document is also attached at the end of the same if this seems too shabby). During my earliest childhood the most important kind of knowledge that I received came to me, rather informally, through the discussions and debates with my dad. As such, asking questions has become an integral part of my personality. The conversations on philosophy, spirituality and religion that I have had as a child with my dad have played a major part in shaping me into who I am today – a critical thinking, curious and reflective individual. My passion for Physics kindled when I embarked on a
  3. Hello! Thanks for clicking on my post, as you can infer, I have written a statement of purpose (a general one) that leaves plenty of room to add about two paragraphs of specific research about each program I am applying to. I would love to talk with someone about what I have written (this is my third draft) and also show an example of my 'specific research' for the University of Chicago. I will also provide some more details about myself below GPA: 3.644 Major GPA: 3.59 Graduated in 2 Years B.A in Mathematics (Pure) No prior research experience By the
  4. 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?
  5. Hi everyone! I'm currently working on my application to be admitted to an MPA program, more specifically the program at the University of Central Florida. I'd really appreciate any feedback on my SoP! I can PM the link to it Many thanks!!
  6. I am writing my statement of purpose tomorrow morning for the UGA school of engineering. Could someone tell me if it's okay or if I need to change up some parts? Statement of Purpose CE.docx
  7. Hello! I am applying to social work/counseling programs and today is the first day I am sitting down and thinking about how i will be writing my personal statements/SoP. The reason I am in this field is because of a difficult home life and living with people who have mental illness. I want to be personal and real about why I am applying but I do not know what is considered too personal or how much is too much. Does anyone have any advice? Whether its the amount I should include or the topics I should definitely include/definitely want to avoid. thank you so much!
  8. Hey everyone, Could anyone familiar with UCLA's sociology department help me out with a quick question on the SOP word limit? The division-wide application portal says up to 500 words allowed, but since this is so much lower than the requirement for all other sociology departments I'm applying to it struck me as odd. I also happened to read someone's statement for UCLA that went significantly over that (1000+ words) from a few years ago who was accepted (I didn't get the statement directly from them so I feel weird to reach out and ask them myself about this). The sociology department web
  9. Would anyone be willing to review for SoP for civil engineering MS? I could offer suggestions to yours too. Thanks !
  10. 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!
  11. I want to apply for PhD program in mechanical engineering at Stanford. Furthermore, I want to conduct research in the area of computer vision and computer graphics with application to robotics, manufacturing and mechanical industry. However, there are not any professors in mechanical engineering department who conduct research in this area, most of the relevant professors are in Computer science or electrical engineering. Is there a way to highlight my intent to conduct interdisciplinary research with a professor outside mechanical department in the Statement of Purpose without nega
  12. Does anyone have any tips on writing a Statement of Purpose for Philosophy PhD schools? Or have an example? I'm having trouble making mine not seem absolutely terrible haha.
  13. Hi, Here's my SoP for applying to PhD in Astriphysics mainly in European Universities. Thanks in advance for helping me out with the review. <SOP> Being an ardent lover of science, I always wondered about the underlying physical processes in the universe. I spent a considerable amount of learning about astrophysics which predisposed me to want to get into Astrophysics research. I enrolled myself in a BSc Physics program at Ramnarain Ruia College followed by the University of Mumbai for MSc in Physics. At both the institutes, I had an experience of both educati

  15. Any recommendation for SOP writing services in US? Thank you
  16. Hello, I have just written my SOP and need help with edits and/or a review of my paper. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. There are a few things I am considering deleting, but not sure what someone with experience/expertise thinks...I have not formatted the SOP as of yet. I plan to do so once the review/edits are completed. Thank you for your time and support! In case the file does not open, here is a link to the google doc.
