Pratibha Jain, international education counselor decodes what an ideal
Statement of Purpose (SOP) should look like
The Statement of Purpose (SOP) is an important part of the application for admission to many universities around the world. This is the one place where you may ‘tell your story’, or the qualities of personality that are not reflected in transcripts, reference letters, and resume. The subjectivity of this autobiographical essay makes it difficult for anyone to articulate the exact format or code which makes for the perfect answer. Many feel that the ideal SOP does not exist, so just be you, don’t fret or worry too much about what the admission panel would like to read.
