Each university/Department has its own requirement for preparing a Statement of Purpose, which is otherwise known as Statement of Intent, College application essay or simply essay etc. This SOP is a crucial admission document which makes or breaks an application. If the SOP is good, universities may overlook a few minor deficiencies and make a positive decision. At the same time, nothing can help a student, if the SOP is badly prepared, even if other aspects of the application are good enough.

When necessary, Meridian reviews the SOPs, evaluates the content, suggests changes and make them most effective for applicants’ purpose. This service is provided FREE OF COST.

Meridian has developed a complete ‘Application Support Kit’, which includes,
  • SOP Guidelines
  • SOP Dos and Don’ts
  • Sample SOP
A 'Statement of Purpose' as the name implies, has to provide your purpose, reasons and background details in the form of an essay/statement. Universities would like to know how you present yourself within this very important document. They are keen to know your background, your reasons for doing a particular program, your aspirations, your achievements and your future plans in order to consider you for admission into their program.

College Application Essays are normally asked for, by the Undergraduate Admissions Offices, with that name. For Graduate admissions, most universities ask for an 'essay' or a 'State of Purpose. At the Doctoral level, in addition to this SOP, universities also ask for a Research proposal.

For MBA programs in good B schools, multiple essays are normally required on various topics. Some schools ask for just two, whereas a few schools ask for more than six essays.

Two important features of such essays are that each essay will be on a specific issue or situation and with a word or page limit. For instance one of the essay topics may be to describe a difficult situation in the work place and how it was overcome. The limit prescribed could be within 500 words. Applicants are expected to make precise essays, just on the topic given and within the size, without deviation. Any such deviation could affect admission chances adversely, since admission committees consider such applicants to be incapable of meeting the guidelines. Also, the admission committee members would like to see how the essay is presented, structured and how the content is appropriate etc.

A personal statement should include reasons for choosing this particular course, your area of interest, the suitability of your education and experiential background for this course and your personal and present future goals.
