Any applicant’s SOP is THE most important organ of the overall application.

SOP is supposed to cover these aspects about your profile-
1 Background – Academic, Personal, Professional and Extracurricular
2 What are your goals?
3 How does MS fit into it?
4 Why are you applying to University XYZ?
5 Why should the University accept you?

To address these, you can include the following components in your SOP-

1 Background and Aspirations – Clear goals help
2 Academic and Professional relevance – Show you are good in your field
3 Personal Story – Show a face behind the application | Talk about how you have overcome challenges | what motivates you?
4 Talk about how you have applied your learning – Show that you can execute your lessons in practice
5 Why are you applying to this school?
6 Why should this school admit you?
