Wordvice Grad School Admissions: the write tip!

Unlike college, graduate school admissions officers don't just want to know who you are. Their ultimate test is whether they can see you as a future colleague.

Apart from grades and test scores, strong recommendation letters and personal statements can make or break a candidate's prospects. In fact, even with a lower GPA and scores, you can be admitted if you have convinced your target program's admissions committee of your potential to excel in the field you've chosen.

Given the heavy emphasis on written documents to support your candidacy, it makes sense that having your statement of purpose (SOP) professionally edited can improve your chances of getting accepted. One of the major goals of research-oriented fields is not to simply study a topic (HINT: admin officers are not looking for folks who just want to take more classes!). Rather, researchers desire to share their knowledge through publication. So, if you want to join the ranks of your target department’s wonderfully dynamic team, you must demonstrate strong motivation to conduct research and equally impressive writing skills.

What if I’m an international student?

The good news for international students is that you don’t usually need as high a TOEFL score for grad school admissions as you would need for college. If you look at the TOEFL infographic prepared by Magoosh, you’ll see that the average TOEFL scores for graduate programs are sometimes 10-20 points lower than for college admissions!

With that said, your SOP must still be readable and clearly convey your determination to become a future active researcher! You must prove to the admissions committee that their program is an essential step for the career path you’ve chosen and that your interests are aligned with the department’s.

Why should you consider Wordvice’s professional editing services for your statement of purpose?

Our editors are here to help you demonstrate that you are the future colleague your target school is looking for. When admissions officers are faced with two candidates who have similar grade profiles, a student’s personal statement and recommendation letters can tip the balance in favor of one student over another.

A poorly drafted essay will fail to show the best side of you. When admissions officers find grammar mistakes, they will think that you did not bother to properly proofread your essay. When your essay is not properly organized, they will worry that you are unable to form strong logical progressions necessary to handle graduate-level research and publications. And when your essay only rehashes parts included elsewhere in your application, admissions officers will wonder whether you lack the mental capacity to be more creative and do more than the bare minimum.

So how does proper proofreading and editing help you improve your chances of acceptance?

A well-written admissions essay will convince the admissions officers that you would be an invaluable asset for the school. With a clearly organized statement of purpose, you can show how well you can articulate your thoughts and explain the types of research you have conducted or would like to undertake. Most importantly, a well-crafted essay means you will successfully demonstrate explain how your career plans and the school’s desire to expand its research capacity are aligned!

So, what are you waiting for? Let us give you the write tip to convince admissions officers that they should pick you!

Our experienced admissions essay proofreaders and editors will comb through your drafts to clarify your writing (including grammar, language use, and sentence structure) and make sure you have provided enough details to tell a poignant story that distinguishes you from other candidates.

For international students who struggle with language barriers, our native-English speakers can help you use more natural phrases that exemplify English language fluency.

We know that you have many items to take care of during the college application process. With Wordvice, you can be assured that one of the most important factors in your application—your admissions essay—will be in safe hands.
