*****SOP Writing Guidelines*****

As application deadlines for Fall/Spring admissions are approaching, applicants are in rush situation in preparing application package. SOP is one of the important documents to be submitted for grad admission.

I’ve attached my SOP (or, letter of intent) as well as personal history statement (PHS) (some Universities ask for PHS).


Also follow the SOP writing guidelines taken from top most Universities of USA.

1) University of California, Berkeley

2) MIT- Massachusetts Institute of Technology

3) California Institute of Technology

4) Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana

5) The University of California, Los Angeles

Some points to be taken into account:

1) Do not show your weak points in SOP
2) Do not ask for funding in SOP
3) Emphasize on research and academic accomplishments
