Linguistics PhD SOP- too much focus on past experience?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I'm currently working on my SOP for applications to linguistics PhD programs. I've been advised to include more information about the direction I want to head and the questions I want to ask than about my previous research experience. That being said, I think I may have too much info about my past experience and not a clear enough idea about the direction I want to head. Any thoughts on this? Should I include all relevant research experience and conference presentations and elaborate on them in my statement, or spend more ink on my future plans?

Also, if anyone has a successful SOP that they would be willing to share so that I can get a sense of the format I would very much appreciate it! :)
