Remember, unlike an MBA program, you won’t be having any personal interviews for a graduate program, so the only way to impress the admissions officers is by telling your story through the statement of purpose.
You will have to convey your story in the best possible way, such that the committee finds you interesting enough.
And if you are interesting enough to them, you will end up with not only admission, but also a decent scholarship as well.
It is important that you follow a specific strategy when it comes to drafting your statement of purpose.
If the former is your answer, then you need to put in a lot of effort to tell your story. Now, when you have found this strong reason, tell it as a story.
Think about ‘why’ you want to study what you want to study. Write a short, but great narrative about what made you make this choice.
They may not ask you openly, but Now, these are the questions you will have to consider before starting off with your statement of purpose.
Write down answers separately to each of the questions asked above, and try to build a story that the admissions committee would love to read.
Even though we asked you to write a story, you will have to remember that your story should not read like a thesis.
It should rather serve as the best source of information about you.
