joops Posted December 31, 2010 Share Posted December 31, 2010 (edited) Hey again everyone. Sorry if this topic has been exhausted before, but I have a pretty specific question regarding SOPs. I plan to mention specific faculty in all of my SOPs, but I'm wondering if I may be taking a risk by not mentioning every single prof. I may be able to work with at each school. Is is possible that I'm shooting myself in the foot by mentioning only two or three potential advisors? I mean, if a professor is interested in my application and feels that my interests align well with his or hers, then will he or she be offended if I haven't mentioned him/her? To try to avoid this problem, I mentioned about 7 professors for an SOP that is due today. Is this a mistake? Should I just mention a few and if there is a professor who is interested in me, will he or she excuse the fact that I didn't talk about him or her in my SOP? Thanks again, and sorry if I am clogging this board with so many topics! Edited December 31, 2010 by Alissa Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
