Dialectica Posted October 16, 2016 Share Posted October 16, 2016 I apologize for inundating the forum with so many questions lately, but I think it's helpful in at least two ways: likely some questions will be asked that others want asked, but don't want to take the time to look at what applicants have said in years past. Secondly, it keeps this forum active, which, at times, is difficult, but beneficial. So, what makes for a successful statement of purpose? What has worked in the past (if you have reason to think it played a role at all in your success)? I've heard that one should try and "do some philosophy" in the statement. Not only have I not seen great examples of this, but I'm not entirely clear what is meant by it. If someone has any such examples, I'd be interested to see them. I think the problem of "doing philosophy"—depending on how one interprets it—is especially acute given concerns regarding word count. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
