An SOP stands for Statement of Purpose. Purpose means the reason for which something exists. To be precise, SOP is a letter of intent which describes you, your goals and intentions that the admission committee will evaluate. An SoP is a document which shows your passion, clarity of thoughts, dedication, inspiration, and most importantly, uniqueness.
The evaluator has never seen you or heard of you. So, the SoP serves the purpose of telling the admission committee why they should choose you. To apply for admission in US universities, you have to take utmost care in SOP preparation. It is “the” most important document. They want to know a student in and out and not just by his transcripts and final year project. An SoP document carries a lot of weightage. A well written SoP, particularly for the top universities for MS in US, can tilt the scales in your favour.
SoP is basically an essay and a major chunk of it will be boring. However, it is the most important document which means preperation of SoP will take a lot of your time. Start working on it from around 1st week of October (if you’re applying for Fall). It’s not an essay on a political leader which will get over in a day. To draft the best SoP, you have to make several rough drafts, keep on editing your SoP. Then get it proof-read by your seniors and then you will have your final copy ready.
Important Note: You have to make as many rough drafts as the number of universities you are applying to. All the content more or less remains the same except the paragraph where you describe the specific university. So, finish the common parts of an SoP as early as possible and then start searching for particular university as mentioned in point no. 5.
Tip: First and Last sentence of every paragraph is very very important as the evaluator won't spend more than a minute on your essay. So, s/he might skim through the SoP and would focus on the first/last sentences of the paragraph which can decide your result.
