Writing a Statement of Purpose is hard.  But every year thousands of people do it and are successfully admitted to graduate school.  With a little effort you can be one of the successful ones, and we’re happy to help you get there.  We’ve compiled a list of Statement of Purpose resources from around the web that we believe are well written and will help you in your journey.  Click on the links below to get started.

1. Books.  We’ve reviewed dozens of books about applying to graduate school.  These are our favorites.

2. Websites.  You can find a lot of information for free on the web.  Here are a couple of good resources to help you get started.

3. eBook.  After reading dozens of books and hundreds of websites, we decided to create our own resource.  Most of the stuff we read had lots of filler information, and not very much about actually writing the Statement of Purpose.  This is a concise guide focused only the writing process for your Statement of Purpose.
