Here is a collection of lots of sops of lots of seniors. Browse.

According to whacko. (Addressed to our batch)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As for SOPs, don't worry too much. All of you have good writing skills. Anyway, my advice on this matter is:

[1] Have a look at some SOPs *now* or early next SEM.

[2] When it's time to write your own SOP, do it *fully* by yourself. Do not look at anybody else's SOP.

[3] Having made version 1.0 of your SOP, *now* take a look at as many SOPs as you can of guys in your area. Borrow points from then which you think are good.

[4] Your SOP does not have to be too big. We at IITB tend to write long SOPs (1.5 to 2 pages) whereas IITM guys (who get better schools!)Usually write 0.75 page (max. 1 page). Basically, their SOPs are much more direct and to-the-point than ours.

[5] REMEMBER THAT A SOP *MUST* BE ORIGINAL.

Statement of Purpose

I am applying to Stanford University for admission to the Ph.D. program in Computer Science. I am interested in Theoretical Computer Science, particularly in the Design and Analysis of Approximation Algorithms, Combinatory and Complexity Theory.

My interest in Mathematics goes back to the time I was at school. This interest has only grown through my years in school and high school, as I have learnt more and more about the subject. Having represented India at the International Mathematical Olympiads on two occasions, I have been exposed to elements of Discrete Mathematics, particularly Combinatory and Graph Theory, outside the regular school curriculum at an early stage. The intensive training programs we were put through for the Olympiads have given me a lot of confidence in dealing with abstract mathematical problems.

My exposure to Computer Science began after I entered the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay. The excellent facilities,…...

With the changes seen in today’s society the teacher’s roles have also evolved. Today’s teacher must wear many “hats”. We all know that teachers guide and advise on social, moral, and educational issues; they also contribute in molding a child’s personality, aide in their attitude towards learning, which will impact their lives, and teach them to think and make good choice. Mrs. Looney was an advocate for her students, lending them a voice, in a world that often dismisses or fails to recognize a child’s need for intervention. Advocacy promotes the optimal development of each student, being able to identify possible deficiencies, as well as giftedness. Mrs. Looney was acutely aware of every student’s strengths and weaknesses. She also watched each child for changes, which might indicate a need for intervention. Mrs. Looney was an instructor, spending the entire day teaching (instructing) the children in all of the major subjects. She also instructed the students in proper ways to behave in each area of the school. Mrs. Looney taught them how to treat one another, as well as their classroom and school property.

Many Faces

...Sambo Fisher Jayne Santos English 101 May 22, 2008 Many Faces There is no good if there is no evil. In the early 1900s, a time of change brought many prosperous beginnings, a time for capitalism, a time for opportunities. However, with them came a time of conflict and turmoil for the poor, the immigrants, and the ostracized—women. In society a woman was classified as the maiden, the nurturer, the Madonna, the sex goddess, the witch, or the whore. In the novel Ragtime, E.L. Doctorow portrays these different types of women as Mameh, Mother, Evelyn Nesbit, and Emma Goldman. Doctorow uses fictional characters along with real historical characters to paint a colorful and vivid picture of these times, to portray the social class distinctions, the morality of women, and the many undergoing changes of this era. Like an hour glass figure the social classes were very distinct among women; there were the rich, the poor, and a few in between. The women of higher social status, the wealthy were embedded with the idea that sexual purity was a must in order to get married. It was considered a stain in a family’s reputation for a woman to have premarital sex and worse promiscuous sex. The importance of reputation is clearly illustrated in Ragtime. “Runaway women died in the rigors of ecstasy. Stories were hushed up and reporters paid off by rich families” (Doctorow 4). To women of wealth marriage was their goal, and their reputation was the only thing they had. In contrast to the......

Many Thousands Gone

...Many Thousands Gone: The First Two Centuries of Slavery in North America Starting with the Emergence of Atlantic Creoles in the Chesapeake, The book opens by telling the story of Anthony Johnson, a slave from Jamestown, Virginia who gained his own freedom. Johnson eventually became a very successful farmer and ironically had slaves of his own. As a master now, Johnson provided food and shelter for his slaves while allowing them to buy freedom just as he had done. Some slave-owners were harsher than other slave owners while some allowed their slaves to be financially independent. Then there was the Expansion of Creole Society in the North. The north also had slaves but didn’t have slave societies. In the North, the slaves were preferred to have experience because they understood European ways already. Mostly Atlantic Creoles settled here. New York had the highest number of slaves who progressed into former slaves. The North could not afford plantation life but accepted the principle idea. In the North slaves did not have the best living conditions however. Slaves were sometimes forced to sleep in back rooms or closets compared to the South where they lived in quarters and homes. Next I would like to address the divergent paths in the low country. In the Low Country, slaves gained freedom and were even involved in political life. Rice cultivation is what caused slavery to be different in low country compared to other regions. In the low country, escaping from slavery was...

The Many Faces of Startup Financing

...The Many Faces of Start-Up Financing All entrepreneurs face a similar challenge in the infant stage of their new venture: raising capital. While successful companies in their adolescent years can display steady cash flows and solid customer bases to potential investors, companies in their initial stages often cannot. This poses the challenge of obtaining capital sources from entities that may or may not have many reasons to believe in a new company’s ability to perform. However, despite the extensive challenges, there are multiple potential sources of capital that entrepreneurs can strive to obtain. Whether relying on smaller players like friends and family or crowd funding, or reaching out to larger, institutional investors such as angel investor networks or venture capital firms, business owners do have options when it comes to finding the capital they need to get their business off the ground. However, some routes make more sense than others depending on the specific company’s situation and objectives. Typically, a new business begins with something very simple: an idea. Sometime the individual spends years developing and tweaking the idea, and other times it simply comes to them in an instant. However it comes, once it does the entrepreneur needs to begin turning that idea into a more tangible concept. This almost always requires capital, whether for manufacturing a product, developing software, or hiring outside consultants to help develop the idea. There are many......

The Small and the Many

...Asia Foust The Small and the Many Many people may think that the bigger the farming company is, the better they are. However, others think the bigger they are, the more damage they cause to the environment and the economy. There are so many different reasons for both of these opinions, but smaller farms are much more beneficial and practical than bigger, more elaborate, farms. As Bill McKibben says, “We’re moving, if we’re lucky, from the world of few and big to the world of small and many. We’ll either head there purposefully or we’ll be dragged kicking, but we’ve reached one of those moments when tides reverse” (McKibben). Smaller and more abundant farms are helpful because they can create more jobs, can yield more crops than bigger farms, are better for the environment, and they can produce healthier and fresher products to more people. The smaller farms are more abundant compared to the big industrial farms, which means the amount of transportation is less. This means that they do not have to use as much, or any, chemicals on their crops because the products will not be sitting around in boxes for as long as they do when they have to travel further. Bigger farms use chemicals to preserve the longevity of the crop and to terminate anything that would come in the way of the crop growing out its full capability. These chemicals are meant to kill things, and are potentially harmful to people if they are ingested in larger quantities. The lack of pesticides and......

The reasons I believe that the benefits are insufficient are many Veterans have a lack of documentation, because they do not go to the doctor for all of their injuries.

Congress has a backlog on pending claims, and veterans deserve their benefits. I also will cover the caregivers getting training, “Veterans Affair will increase mental health issues”, and “Amputee veteran sues over botched surgery”.

The Many Sides of Death

...Caroline Merrick Instructor Mason ENG 231-352 9 October 2014 The Many Sides of Death The world has forever struggled to understand the complex and thoughtful mind of the poet Emily Dickinson. For most of her life she remained a recluse, isolated from society, and left to do what she loved to do, which was write. Dickinson witnessed a lot of hardships in her later years, including the deaths of many family members and friends. Witnessing so much death in her lifetime sparked her interest in the concept of mortality, and it appears as a major theme in many of her poems. Dickinson seemed to have many different ideas about the subject of death. Three poems that represent these different viewpoints on the subject are “I Heard a Fly Buzz When I Died,” “Because I Could Not Stop for Death,” and “I felt a Funeral in my Brain.” Although all of these poems are about death, each of them represents it in a different way. “Because I Could Not Stop for Death” is a representation of one of Emily Dickinson’s views of death. This poem emphasizes the journey that one takes from life to eternity. This journey is represented as a carriage ride with death. Death in this poem is personified and appears as a kindly gentlemen who was courteous enough to stop for the narrator when she was too busy to stop for him. On the carriage ride, Death takes the narrator through scenes of her childhood. In lines nine through twelve, “We passed the School, where Children strove/ At Recess-in......

Too Many Majors

...Too Many Majors Chelsea McGuire, who is a chair of Communications department at a university in the southeastern U.S., she has built a successful department, ever since she became chairperson of the department. When Chelsea took over the charge there were 500 communication majors and then over a period of time, they grew to 800 such communication majors. As the majors grew, the department is not at that pace. So, Chelsea has appointed two groups to resolve the issues they are having. Both, the groups identified, analyzed and suggested a solution. So far, Chelsea has engaged the faculty in the decision-making and also respected their input. However, now she believes that this style of decision-making might not work in enrollments management decision. So, she decided on changing her style (Miller, Katherine). Identifying Issues: The demand for communication majors was growing and so as the department of Communication, where Chelsea is the chair. The department has introduced almost 300 more majors since Chelsea has taken in-charge. Chelsea wanted to regulate and control the enrollment practice in order to reduce uninterested applicants and give an opportunity for the real interested students. The advantages for the department by introducing this process is getting real communications passion students, filters most interesting students, and also maintains demands for the department.
