How to Write a Statement of Purpose
|A Statement of Purpose (SOP) is a document in which you describe your academic interests and state how studying at the institution to which you are applying will benefit you. Typically the SOP is no longer than 300 words and serves as a chance for you to show yourself as an individual beyond your transcripts and courses list. Other candidates may have similar grades and similar recommendations; the SOP gives you the chance to make a direct statement about why they should choose you.|
