Is anyone here applying to the PhD programs? I am having a hard time writing up my statement of purpose. How much of the statement should be talking about research agenda? I feel like I am talking a lot about my background. It has 6 paragraphs
- Intro about where I am from
- Undergrad (what did I learn? senior thesis)
- Grad (what did I learn? research assistant work and independent research project)
- Research Agenda (questions)
- Why school X? How fit?
- Conclusion (future plan)
Is the above format okay? Or Should 50% of statement be about proposed research plan? I am totally confused. Any input would be much appreciated!!!!!!!
