Windy City Girl Posted December 12, 2010 Share Posted December 12, 2010 Hi everyone! This is my first post, so I hope I put it in the right section. I'm applying for Masters in Human Rights at Columbia (LSMA), LSE and UCL. I've been kind of swamped with other things and have only just begun to really plan out my SOP, but I hope to have something written up by the end of this week so that I may submit them online before January (LSE is rolling admissions and the other two aren't due until the spring). I'm planning on going to either a PhD in Poli Sci or Law afterward, and heavily leaning toward Law. Basically, how important will this portion of my application be, realistically? I have a very high GPA (top 5% of my graduating class) from a top 25 uni in the US, and strong recommendations; GRE isn't required by I got 680 on both V and Q and 5.5 on AWA. I have a lot on my plate in the next two months so I want grad school stuff out of the way and I'm a bit concerned my SOP will be lacking in pizzaz; I'm planning on writing a pretty straightforward 600 wordish essay on my qualifications, future plans, and why I'm attracted to the program. I was going to write about what sparked my interest in the field but I've heard that can be "cutesy" and should be avoided...
