SOP, Importance of Statement Of Purpose


SOP describes your purpose for joining a college. SOP is a very important tool both for the candidate and Universities, to test a candidate on some basic issues like: WHY WANT TO DO THIS PROGRAMME? and WHY this college? Not only this, it also gives an insight about the candidate's thinking process and attitude. Apart from this, SOP is also a very essential tool in the hands of a candidate. It is the only thing that you have for which there's no time limitation and its up to you how well you are able to showcase your abilities.



Tips to write best SOP

Following are the most important points, one need to consider while writing the Statement of purpose-

  •  Determine your purpose in writing the statement

  •  Determine the content of your statement

  •  Determine your approach and style of the statement

  •  Words and phrases to avoid without explanation


Graduate and professional schools often require some sort of written statement as a part of the application. The terminology differs, but may include "statement of purpose," "personal statement," "letter of intent," "personal narrative," etc.

Some statements require rather specific information--for example, the applicant's intended area of study within a graduate field.


  •  Others suggest subjects which should be addressed specifically.

  •  Still others are quite unstructured, leaving the applicant free to address a wide  range of matters.

  •  Some applications call for one statement, while others require responses to a  series of six or more questions, ranging from 250 to 750 words each.

  •  The importance of the statement varies from school to school and from field to  field

Content of SOP

Usually graduate and professional schools are interested in the following matters, although the form of the question(s) and the responses may vary:

  • Your purpose in graduate study. This means you must have thought this through before you try to answer the question.
  • The area of study in which you wish to specialize. This requires that you know the field well enough to make a decision and are able to state your preferences using the language of the field.
  • Your intended future use of your graduate study. This will include your career goals and plans for the future.
  • Your special preparation and fitness for study in the field. This is the opportunity to join and correlate your academic background with your extracurricular experience to show how they unite to make you a special candidate.
  • Any problems or inconsistencies in your records or scores, such as a bad semester. Be sure to explain in a positive manner and justify the explanation. Since this is a rebuttal argument, it should be followed by a positive statement of your abilities. In some instances, it may be more appropriate to provide this information outside of the personal statement.
  • Any special conditions that are not revealed elsewhere in the application, such as a significant (35 hour per week) workload outside of school. This, too, should be followed with a positive statement about yourself and your future.
  • You may be asked, "Why do you wish to attend this school?" This requires that you have done your research about the school, and know what its special appeal is to you.
  • Above all, this statement should contain information about you as a person. They know nothing about you unless you tell them. You are the subject of the statement.
