According to this person:

'After 51 mails, 25 rejections, and 2 hopeful response, I finally got my 1st yes! This message is to encourage and inspire someone out there who is still waiting for a yes because I was on this boat and I can tell you it was not easy rocking it'.
When we say that this journey is not for the weak. I hope you understand better?

One Yes is enough to make you forget many struggles.

Keep applying. Keep sending those emails.

You will get it soon.

Another big win for @AdeleyeSamuelA and I, and Glory to God.
By the way, when you are told to apply and keep in touch, I'm sure you know what it means😀.

Content of a good SOP (Episode 1)

On this SOP matter, we will keep writing tips until many of you get it so that the stress will be reduced.

In this series, I will be explaining in details the content of a good SOP.
1. It should tell us your inclinations i.e the things that appeal to you naturally or as a result of some problems you want to solve in your environment.

Why did you study your undergraduate course? Is it as a result of the things you observed were not right and you want to
correct? Are there emerging technologies in your field that you feel like exploring?

Truth is that many of us do not have compelling reasons to study our courses because of our environment. Many were 'given' the course because of issues beyond their capacity.
