The Statement of Purpose is the single most important part of your application that will tell the admissions committee who you are, what has influenced your career path so far, your professional interests and where you plan to go from here.
The SOP is your chance to talk directly to the admissions committee. To make yourself stand out from among a multitude of similarly qualified candidates. To convince the committee that you have the spark, the thirst for knowledge that could add value to your class.
Strategies for success-the personal statement
The Statement of Purpose should be concise, well-written essay covering three distinct areas relating to you:Open with a summary statement of your preparedness, then describe your background and education the reasons you became interested in the profession of your choice. Briefly discuss your academic preparation (including lab or Research), relevant work, and other experiences, i.e., volunteer work. Make sure to tell the reader what you gained from these experiences – what qualities you have developed. Discuss how the school will help you meet your educational and career goal. State your skills, your strengths, and your uniqueness. Be positive and not apologetic. However, explain any significant lapses in your academic record.
Writing a reasonably good Statement of Purpose is not an impossible task. It requires care, attention and patience. And enough time for you to be able to write several drafts, show them to people and polish the essay till you get a version you are happy with.

Cost of Education
Cost of education differs from country to country & accordingly the students take their steps. These are either self funded or bank financial aids which help a student to determine his costs while studying abroad. Before applying abroad, the foreign nationals have to show concrete proof of sufficient funds to the universities which can cover their expenses at least for the first year of their college. Though, university funding is comparatively easier for entering the US universities, it is really tough in other destinations as in U.K., Canada, Australia or New Zealand. More formalities have to be met while applying to these particular universities. Since, cost of education varies, they all deal with the two vital aspects including tuition costs & living expenses.
Here is a list of other expenses pertinent to international students in particular:
|#||Expense||Low Range||High Range|
|1||Application Fees, per school||$0||$100|
|2||Entrance Exams, each||$100||$200|
|3||Tuition and Fees||$2,500||$40,000|
|4||Books and Study Materials||$1,000||$2,000|
|6||Room and Board (Accommodations)||$8,000||$12,000|
Expenses in U.S.A.
US Universities fall under two major categories: public (state supported), and private (independent) institutions. International students’ tuition expenses at state schools are based on nonresident costs, which are still usually less expensive than those of private universities. It’s important to note that the cost of a program in a US school does not necessarily affect its quality.
A brief idea can be had from the following table:
|#||University Type||ENTIRE COURSE FEES|
|1||Private Institutions (High Cost)||$19,000|
|2||Private Institutions (Low Cost)||$12,000|
|3||State Institutions (High Cost)||$13,000|
|4||State Institutions (Low Cost)||$12,000|
The tuition fee is different for different universities and varies widely with courses. It can vary from as low as $ 5000 a year for state universities to as much as $ 30000 per annum for some private universities. For more specific details, please contact the universities.
The approximate annual living expenses are about $10,000, which includes accommodation as well as other daily expenses. However, the expenses are different for different people depending on the lifestyles and this is just a rough idea.
The main expenses can be split up as:
|1||Rent||$400/Month (Cheaper in places like Auburn or shared with 6 others)|
