will415 Posted January 21, 2011 Share Posted January 21, 2011 (edited) I am applying to a masters program in math/statistics. For my first application I wrote an SOP that had a 500 word minimum and I think what I wrote was well written and succinct. However several other schools I am applying to use a common application where the SOP can go to as many as 1500 words. I am considering just amending my well written 500 word SOP and submitting it to these other schools but am hesitant. Is it a really bad idea to go that far under the minimum? Or would veteran adcoms appreciate brevity? I could add a bit to show more of my personality but am a little worried about watering it down. Any input would be much appreciated! Thank!
