Convince admissions officers that you deserve to be accepted

Your grades and coursework may define your academic competence, but they barely scratch the surface of who you are as an individual. That’s why your statement of purpose is so important — it is the best way of defining yourself to admissions officers as more than just a GPA and test scores. It reveals your motivations for attending school, the area of concentration you will choose if accepted, and what you plan to do after graduation.

Woman writing a statement of purpose

In communicating all these important points, you must capture the interest of your audience with writing that is original and engaging. This is where ServiceScape comes in, offering an expert outside perspective that can edit your writing and give it the direction it needs. We want to help refine your statement of purpose into a true showcase for your abilities, without any errors or awkwardness to distract admissions officers from appreciating your unique strengths.

With our help and advice, your statement of purpose will shine

Statement of purpose editor

Here at ServiceScape, we pride ourselves on helping you to perfect a thoughtful, well-crafted statement of purpose that tells your story in the most effective way possible. We are passionate about each SOP project that comes our way, and we are committed to making sure that your writing is the very best that it can be.

Once you've selected an editor, your chosen professional will get down to business by scrutinizing your statement of purpose for any and all errors and areas for improvement. Specifically, your editor will evaluate and address:

  • Errors in spelling, grammar, syntax, tense, and sentence structure
  • Readability and flow
  • Overall organization
  • How well the statement of purpose responds to any required prompt
  • The strength of your introduction and conclusion
  • Redundancy and unnecessary content
  • Conciseness and adherence to any required word count, where possible
  • Language and diction
  • Consistency in regional English spelling conventions, including American, British, Canadian, and Australian variations
  • Your overall writing style

But that's just the beginning. We will also work to ensure that your audience will be engaged and curious to learn more about you. We will make sure your writing is free of clichés and full of interesting, well-expressed ideas that admissions officers want to read. In short, we will optimize your statement of purpose so that it presents a compelling picture of who you are and what you are capable of doing.

When it comes to SOP editing, experience is key

Our editors won't be finished with your statement of purpose until you are completely satisfied. ServiceScape is home to accomplished editors who have been rated and reviewed by clients just like you. Many editors have been rated hundreds or even thousands of times. If you are unsure about who to choose, you can check out any editor’s client reviews to get a full understanding of that editor’s capabilities.

ServiceScape's team of experienced editors have worked on thousands of SOPs over the years, and they have a deep understanding of the application process as well as the committees' expectations. Our accomplished and professionally qualified editors are ready to help you to deliver a statement of purpose that will establish a strong connection with your readers.

If time is a factor, you can submit an Express Delivery project and have your statement of purpose professionally edited within an hour without any compromise on quality.

Open and easy communication with your SOP editor

Teleconference with an SOP editor

We also value communication at every stage of the editing process. That's why we ensure that you can discuss any issue with any editor at any time by simply sending a message or setting up a teleconference call.
