Sihara Posted September 5, 2012 Share Posted September 5, 2012 (edited) Hey guys, I've been brainstorming for my SoP and am curious how you all have approached it/plan to approach it. In particular: 1) When discussing current research interests, how much detail have you gone into? I'm concerned about going into too much detail, accidentally mentioning something that is not exactly accurate or feasible (since, after all, I have yet to research the specific problem in great depth), and appearing as though I lack knowledge. For a PhD application, is it best to keep this discussion focused but general, or is it best to go into as much detail as possible (e.g. briefly mention specific texts, previous academic perspectives, etc.)? 2) If you have several ideas for future research in mind, how do you decide which two (or so) to focus on? Is anyone willing to share an example? Thanks so much in advance for any thoughts! Edited September 5, 2012 by Hierophany lafayette 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
