Very interesting story. And how is it going on your job now?
Want to ask you, did you write your statement of purpose by yourself or asking for help at some specialized sources? I’m looking to place an order for help on sop for mba program
I know a lot of stories when students did not have a strong and nice SOP. Mostly of them didn’t match all needed requirements and they might to ask for help from different student services. So my advice will be: for the first — collect as much info about SOP as you can, for the second — if you have some problems, better — ask professionals.
