In 2017, I applied to 11 premier universities for my Bachelors.

I got into 10.

For any university application, the following 3 things are critical:
1. Application form
2. Letter of recommendation (LOR)
3. Statement of purpose (SOP)

The application forms were straightforward.

Letters of recommendation were given to me by my teachers and employers.

The ‘make it or break it’ feature was my Statement of Purpose.

A good SOP is one which:
1. Tells your story
2. Exhibits your personality
3. Narrates your achievements (and lessons)
4. Shares your future goals.

Basically, a Statement of Purpose tells the, well, purpose of your life.

Again, a good SOP is also:
1. Succinct
2. Cohesive
3. Persuasive
4. Emotional.

Keep these things in mind, and begin writing!

Remember: A good SOP takes days, weeks, months to write (and rewrite.) Give it the time it deserves.
