Statement of Purpose (SOP) Advice
Though we can offer a couple of suggestions, please keep in mind that with any SOP you write, there is no formula to follow.
- Keep your essay down to 1-2 pages double-spaced.
- Highlight some of your leadership experience.
- Why would you be a good fit for this program? (Remember, we're looking for leadership experience and entrepreneurial spirit. What sets you apart?)
- Give us your reason(s) for applying.
- Explain your intended focus and what you would do with an M.S.
