Graduate – Statement of Purpose

June 1st to June 7th

Create a draft.

Take the time to create a draft version of your Statement of Purpose. It’s always good to work this way to organize your thoughts first.

Your goal is to get your initial wording down before talking to an expert.

June 7th to June 21st

Review with an expert.

Use the resources available to you to review your draft and provide suggestions for changes. Don’t feel like you have to do this alone. People naturally want to help others.

Your goal is to get feedback on your draft to make revisions and finalize the document.

Check with your school to see what services they offer for reviewing such documents. A lot of schools have dedicated centers that help with such things amongst other things such as resumes. If there is no such center the find an English professor who is willing to help.

June 21st to June 30th

Revise and finalize.

You’ve gotten great feedback at this point. Now it’s time to make your revisions and finalize your Statement of Purpose.

Your goal is to ensure that the document is ready to be printed.

June 21st to June 30th

Print multiple copies.

Depending on how many universities you are applying to you will want to print multiple copies of your Statement of Purpose.

Your goal is to have enough printed copies to cover each university you are applying to.

Wrap Up

Hopefully, with help from an expert, your Statement of Purpose is now complete. You will need to think about your professors, mentors and employers who will write you a sparkling Letter of Recommendation!

My English professor really helped me with great feedback for my Statement of Purpose. I was able to quickly turn around the revisions and have it ready to go!
