Stat MS SOP - Mentioning end goal of PHD?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm currently in the process of drafting my statement of purpose for the various Statistics MS programs I'll be applying to this year, most of which are theoretically oriented, but terminal, programs.

My ultimate goal, however, is to pursue a PhD in Statistics, with the Master's degree serving as a stepping stone that would hopefully allow me to gain research experience/prove myself in graduate-level coursework. Is it alright to mention these future PhD/research aspirations among my motivations for applying in my SOP? I'm unsure whether it's advisable or not to state it explicitly...
