Hey All, I'm graduating next year with a BS in Mechanical Engineering and have begun applying to graduate programs in the same field. My problem is the Statement of Purpose (SoP). On top of everything else, you are supposed to include prior research experience. This is supposed to demonstrate that you are capable of pursuing graduate level work. Unfortunately I haven't done much research. I worked for a professor over the summer but it was more of a technical position than research; I was helping his graduate students prepare test samples, set up machines, etc. Do you have any recommendations on how I should go about writing my SoP? Thanks!
