This is frequently accomplished by detailing the social, educational, cultural, and economic obstacles you have overcome on your journey to where you are today, as well as your future goals. A personal statement is also an opportunity to highlight what makes you unique and how you intend to promote diversity within the institution.
Statement of Purpose
A statement of purpose, also known as a “research statement,” will ask you to describe your research interests and professional goals, how you intend to achieve them, and why a specific program is the best fit for you to do so. Make a point of mentioning your specialized interests within your major field. Be specific about the type of program you intend to pursue, and explain how your study plan relates to your previous training and future goals.
