The MBA Statement of Purpose is a bit different than other SOPs that students write.
Since most MBA programs have a condition of accepting students with work experience, applicants usually have 2 more years of their career lives to talk about.
If they both fit in your word count, yes
Include them both
But if not, write only about your co-curricular activities
Or maybe just include a couple of lines about extra-curricular
At the same time, follow the SOP writing structure
Write your Statement of Purpose (SOP) in a paragraph format with not more than 1000 words or one to one and a half pages.
Make sure you mention your full name and the program you want to apply for at the top of each page.
To make sure that your SOP is the easiest to read, use a Times New Roman font (12 points) with 1-inch margins on all sides. And more
Hi Lana, you can look at this answer to see what the difference is between an SOP and a Personal Statement.
In a Personal Statement, you have to relate your life decisions with your personal experiences.
In your Personal Statement, you'll have to emphasize more on how your personal life led you to make decisions about your professional life
So, you have to make sure you don't stray away from talking about your career and interests as you write about your personal life
Avoid talking about your grades at all.
Instead, talk about the subjects you scored well in, and the projects and papers you worked on, in relation to the program you're applying for.
However, if a school asks you for justification, you can say it was because of a major sickness or a family emergency.
One small typo won't cause you too much of a problem especially, if most of your SOP is well-written. Most people ignore the typo and assume that it's a genuine mistake. But if there are more than one or two mistakes in your Statement of Purpose, then it shows your carelessness. So make sure you get your SOP proofread either by online tools and that you don't make the same mistakes again. Here are some tips to follow while writing SOP for future universities:
The most common tip would be not to over think and let it go.
If the typo is some official date or title then that could affect your application and make a bad impression. While universities don't usually allow re submissions, you could try writing an official email to the university and request to rectify your mistake.
The last tip would be to check if your university offers re submissions
