Orange745 Posted February 5, 2009 Share Posted February 5, 2009 I have a few questions about SOPs... 1. People talk a lot about SOPs for phd students, do the same rules apply for a masters applicant? My statement was pretty career focused. 2. Should the SOP be somewhat anecdotal? 3. How specific should I be when describing what I want to study? How direct should it be? (i.e. Is it enough to say I am interested in this field with this specialization because of ________.) I'm applying to operations research engineering programs, but I'm a math and econ double major (graduating). I had an engineering internship for a few summers so I have some experience. I read the post about SOPs but I'm still somewhat confused. I explained how I discovered OR, why I chose my majors, my experience with research, and then I explained the importance of a masters degree to my career aspirations. I then complimented the school's curriculem in generic terms and I told them I would be a good fit ect. Is that all you're supposed to do? I have a feeling in the back of my mind that I am missing something. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
