Hi! I was wondering if anyone applying for the sciences could tell me how much they are planning to write/have written for the statement of purpose, please? I'm also reapplying to Durham and they give something crazy like 32000 characters, so I've got quite a long statement for that. Is 1000 words ish too long? It's all about why I want to do a PhD, areas of particular interest, my lab experience/skills and a general plea of 'pick me! pick me!'
