This site is dedicated to help you with your application for admission to a university. In particular, it will enable you to:

  • Understand what a Statement of Purpose (SoP) is
  • Understand what universities expect when they ask for a Statement of Purpose
  • Use guidelines to write your own unique, winning Statements of Purpose and similar essays

      On this site, we have tried to take the intimidation out of the essay-writing process by providing step-by-step guidelines that we and our friends found useful in our own application processes. While we concentrate on Statements of Purpose for graduate schools, this site will also be of some use to undergraduate applicants and to those writing essays as part of the application process.
