A statement of purpose (SOP) is a mandatory requirement when applying for graduate school admission in the U.S.
International students who visit this blog for the first time usually leave comments like these:
I want to study for a master’s degree in clean energy, I hope I can enroll this September. If anyone can offer some help on the SOP for this field, I will really appreciate it.
I am a final year management student and I’m going to pursue a master’s in finance. Can anyone please send me a sample SOP?
Hi! Can you suggest me good a SOP for MSc in physiotherapy?
There are so many similar comments made to the article Sample SOPS. But why does everyone want a sample SOP in the field they plan to apply at?
An SOP is something that will highlight your life story, so that simply means it should be original because it’s about you.
All you need is a few sample SOPs that will show you how to write an SOP, including its format and template. You can use those templates and create the SOP for your field with your story and experiences.
The truth is, there is really no need to get an exact sample college admission essay for your field.
Students asking for sample SOPs in their particular fields of study are definitely looking to copy the exact SOP. If you are thinking of copying an existing SOP, it will be easy to find out with other credentials if you really wrote your own SOP.
If your TOEFL score is, let’s say, less than 79 and your AWA writing score in GRE in 3.0 and if you have a SOP that is well written, that makes it very obvious.
So try to avoid copying the SOPs of others. Put some effort to understand how to write an SOP and create your own.
