Hi! I'm from a country were there is no tradition of writing statements of purpose. I'd really like to have a look at some good examples -- for reference purpose. But the ones I've come across online (e.g. https://web.stanford.edu/~paulcon/ill-c ... anford.pdf) are not quite convincing in my opinion (to put it mildly).
Could you share some well-written sample statements where I can get an idea of what one is supposed to look like?
