todamascus Posted January 4, 2012 Share Posted January 4, 2012 Hi guys, I know its a bit silly but this has been bugging me for months. Who will be looking at my SOPs, writing sample on the grad level, professors, senior grad students or admission officers ？How different is it from college admissions? I've heard some schools have admissions officers look over first but some just rally professors in their department ( "special committee")for "group-review". This difference could be huge -- i 've heard from a college admissions officer that my SOP is not safe -- that i don't sound optimistic enough to her as an applicant...but it's difficult to sound gleeful in my research proposal on Kierkegaard, Michelstaedter, Camus, Dostoyevsky...without appearing like a clueless peanut head to professors. I've been obsessing about my last two applications -- changing it back and forth on second guesses. Man i am hopeless. If there's indeed a difference in reviewing process, does anyone know of any school in specific? Thanks to y'all and have a good night. regards, h.
