tron Posted November 14, 2009 Share Posted November 14, 2009 the initial encouragement i received from my professors at my decision to apply to graduate school turned to discouragement when they read the first (and as of now, only) draft of my statement of purpose. i have been trying to do reconstructive surgery on the darned thing, but the more i try to rethink the more i realize just how inchoate my ideas are, and the more i read the more i realize how much i haven't read. my question is -- is this a unique dilemna, are these clear signs that i'm just not ready/should postpone or give up? or is the process of writing a statement discouraging by nature, are we supposed to be overwhelmed with how much there is out there that we're just not certain about/familiar with yet?
