Sample SOPs

FIRST DRAFT of the SOP given by the Student: I was just 5 years old when my school taught us about sharing and how it made everyone happy. I decided to put it to use immediately and went to my grandmother with a chocolate. I offered her half the chocolate but to my surprise, she turned it down. As a child, the fact that someone could refuse chocolate was enough to drive me crazy. But then she explained to me that she had an illness called diabetes and because of this she could not eat any sweets. This is when I began to notice that she did some very strange things. While the very thought of needles and injections would fill me with dread, she would prick her finger on a “machine” and often go to the hospital to take injections of “medicine”. This made me feel very sorry forREAD MORE
| Sample SOP for CS- This a Statement of Purpose of a student who got admitted to New York University Tandon School of Engineering for the Masters in CS program. | FIRST DRAFT of the SOP given by the Student: The fruits of technological advances are conspicuously manifested into a cell phone in every pocket and a computer in every backpack but what’s less noticeable is the information that’s being generated along with these advances. With the huge amount of data being accumulated by the day, we can very well justify that we are living in a data-driven era and every day we face a data related problem. Just like every single thing in this universe has been bitten by the bug called evolution so has data, from being measured in bits and bytes the term of measurement has undergone a metamorphosis to an extent that we have units like petabytesREAD MORE

How to write a SOP
HOW TO WRITE A SOP The Statement of Purpose is by far the most important document you will write for your study abroad application and therefore it is necessary for you to know the structure and learn some tips regarding-How to write a SOP. The Statement of Purpose, as the name suggests, requires you to state your ‘purpose’; in other words your ‘motivation’ behind attending a particular graduate programme. It’s absolutely necessary as well as crucial for you to come up with an original and exciting story which the committee hasn’t heard before. Your ‘task’ is to write an essay which is not just an engaging read but also includes interesting facts that makes you come across as someone unique and exclusive.

PERSONAL STATEMENT VS STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

|PERSONAL STATEMENT VS STATEMENT OF PURPOSE- This article is about personal statement vs statement of purpose, a crucial thing to remember during applications.|

To prove worthy of the desired program you wish to attend in the coveted college of your dreams and sound unique and exclusive at the same time is a daunting task. While SOP may fulfill the former requirement, personal statement creates the stage for the latter. Not every college will ask you to furnish both SOP and personal statement and in case they ask you to, please do not confuse one with the other and land up writing a confusing document that diminishes your chances of approval by the admission committee. Personal statement and statement of purpose may sound like the same, but there a few underlying differences involved. (more…)

Sample SOP for MIS

The volume and diversity of data being captured by companies today is staggering. The abundance of data, coupled with the unavailability of powerful data analysis tools, has given rise to a “data rich but information poor” phenomenon. The widening gap between data and information has generated an urgent need for new techniques which will turn these vast amounts of data into “golden nuggets” of knowledge. This realization, spawned from four years of undergraduate studies, has motivated me to work towards becoming a veteran in the field of Information Technology. To this end, I look forward to pursuing a Master in Information Systems Management (MIS) at the Texas A&M University.

MATERIAL SCIENCE SOP

“My philosophy all my life has been the pursuit of excellence”. – John Kluge.

I share Mr. Kluge’s approach towards life. As an individual, I have always undertaken each and every endeavor with a sense of passion and commitment. I have been brought up to respect an individual based on his knowledge rather than his wealth. These moral values that have been instilled in me by my parents, will hold me in good stead in the years to come. These intellectual skills are the single driving force behind my zeal to study Material Science. The urge to learn more and contribute to the field of Material Science has driven the course of my academic career for all these years, including my current decision to pursue graduate study.

SAMPLE SOP FOR MS FINANCIAL ENGINEERING

| Sample SOP for MS Financial Engineering – This a Statement of Purpose of a student who got admitted to Columbia University for the Masters in Financial Engineering (FE) program. |

Over the last few decades, the landscape of the financial industry has transformed at a persistently rapid rate. The world as we know it has changed dramatically on account of the technology boom and the financial industry has been, in my opinion, the biggest beneficiary of this boom. Gone are the days when human intuition played the key differentiating factor in investment decisions. Algorithmic trading now comprises roughly one-third of total volume traded on many mature derivative exchanges. Today’s financial markets rely on innovative models and advanced quantitative techniques and strategies, executed by computer programs, for value creation. I witnessed this first hand during the two 10-week online courses, “Introduction to Finance” and “Computational Finance and Financial Econometrics”, I took via the free online educational website, Coursera. These courses provided me with introductory knowledge on financial instruments, time series concepts, AR(1) and MA(1) models, Monte Carlo Simulation, Markowitz algorithm, and how to use the statistical programming language R for financial applications. Intrigued by the subject matter and realizing my aptitude for the same, I am eager to expand the knowledge I attained during these courses and pursue more a rigorous and thorough education by pursuing a Master’s degree in Financial Engineering at Columbia University.

chemical engineering sop

Working as a Research Associate with Avalon Global Research since the past six months has opened my eyes to the potential opportunities available in design and upgradation of plants. During my tenure, I have completed technical research-driven projects for chemical and mining sector conglomerates such as Shell, RioTinto, Dow etc.  These projects dealt with identifying new technologies, techno-commercial analysis, develop criteria for the selection of technology and the elimination of non-optimal processes, etc. I realized that the potential scope for an engineering consultant tackling these issues is immense. To be an engineering consultant, I require an in-depth knowledge of process control, thermodynamics, transport operations, computer-aided design and reaction kinetics. Hence, I look forward to pursuing a Masters in Chemical Engineering from Cornell University.

Sample SOP for Biomedical Sciences

As I went up on stage to collect my award of merit on graduation day, amidst the loud clamor of applause, the Principal of my high school asked, “What do you see yourself as in the future?” I replied firmly, saying “Scientist”. When asked today, I stand by my statement. The past four years as a student of Pharmacy have only reiterated my desire to pursue a career in research. The idea of delving into the unknown has always enticed me. It is my passion for Human Anatomy, Pharmacology, and the Biochemistry that continues to propel me to the field of research. In this regard, I wish to pursue a Ph.D. in the Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Sciences with an advanced concentration in Physiology and Pharmacology, focusing on Neurobiology and CNS Disorders.
