EccentricAcademic Posted December 15, 2015 Share Posted December 15, 2015 So, I am currently studying in the UK, and am applying to US universities (I did my undergraduate degree in the US so I know US institutions). But an SOP in the UK is really a very confident and slightly detailed research proposal. I was cautioned by one department in the US to not be too research-obsessed or I will come across as unteachable. Which leads me to a question -- is it good to have a less research-oriented SOP for US institutions? Like, should I be saying things like what I hope to learn at these places, as well as what my research will entail? I'm very confused. I'm worried my SOP is far too much like a research proposal for US institutions' likings... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
