I cannot decide which style is better in writing Statement of Purpose for graduate school application.
I am asked a few questions in writing the SOP, such as purpose in applying for graduate study, interested areas and academic experiences.
One style is answering each question and place the answer under the question title. Just like an "exam". I think this style is more clear and organized.
The other style is writing an essay and answering the questions in the essay without addressing them explicitly. I think this style maybe less clear, because the reader need to correspond the sections or parts to the questions.
So which way do you think is better?
