How long does it take to write an SOP and LOR? Does it have to be customized according to University?
SOP and LOR are very important aspects of your admission & application process. Hence you need to spend a considerable amount of time perfecting it. A good SOP can make your profile standout whereas a poorly written SOP can destroy your chances of getting admits from top universities. Lots of variations in the SOP draft need to be made to find the perfect one. Continuous proofreading and changing it accordingly will consume a lot of time. We suggest you to spend at least 15 days to 1 month preparing and drafting the SOP. As for LOR, it helps in validating all the claims that you state in your SOP. It helps the admission committee in forming good first impressions upon going through your profile. Make sure you get your LOR from a professor/HOD/Team Lead who knows you well and can elaborate on your virtues. The LOR generally remains the same for most universities. While some universities might ask for a customized SOP, others might not. You have to make the SOP specific to the specialization you want to take up. Please look the university website to finalize on any details regarding the SOP drafting like word limit, specific pattern if any, etc.
