Statement of Purpose

Why MS:

My professional objective is to your-objective-here. Sample: This demands intensive study. It requires a strong technical education with relevant courses, superior infrastructural support, abundant industry interaction, copious networking opportunities and hands on in-depth research. It requires a specialised professional graduate degree from a top ranking university.

Why Carnegie Mellon:

Sample: CMU is a top ranking university with excellent faculty and research contacts. It excels in its Networking and Entrepreneurship courses and research - both of which I am interested in. The Masters in Information Networking at CMU is "the only program that integrates the disciplines of computer science, electrical and computer engineering, and business and policy studies". It's unique strength is the combination of solid technical foundation with managerial concepts to the strategic use of information.

Why Now:

Your-reason-for-going-now (required for those going after a break in studies)
