Applying to a Taiwan university. Need help urgently!

Applying to a Taiwan university. Need help urgently!

Postby tank » 26 Feb 2016, 03:02

Before I get started, I am sorry if this thread is in the wrong section and the moderator may move this to the appropriate section if it's necessary.

Hello everyone. I specifically created an account to ask this question so I really really hope you guys can help me. After finishing my pre-u course, I have decided to apply to this university called National Yang-Ming University. The only thing that is scratching my head now is that I am required to submit three essays which are autobiography, statement of purpose and study plan!! I have completed my autobiography and study plan but I have no idea what to write for my statement of purpose since that I have pretty much covered everything that i can think of and necessary in study plan and autobiography. After googling and reading tons of sample, I have been told that statement of purpose is essentially the same stuff just with different names :eek: . Any help here?

Medicine? The first search hit on google tells me
1. Statement of Purpose: more like your education history (your gpa, curriculum, etc.)
What driven you to apply and how you have prepared.
2. Autobiography: personal history, family, etc. that have influenced you
Basically, what differentiates you from other applicants and whether you would succeed or not.
3. Study Plan: my guess this is like a research proposal?

What do you think?

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.
