Question Description
I heard that Statement of Purpose is one of the important document that any one should write by themselves to present to consular during visa interview? I am no clear what is this Statement of Purpose? How to write it? Do Bangladeshi students need Statement of Purpose for visa interview for USA?

Statement of Purpose is a document required while applying for admission and student visa. This is actually an essay which describes everything. In statement of purpose you’ll have to describe yourself. You’ll have to explain why you wish to study in particular country or university.

Your statement of purpose must generally contain answer for these questions:

Who will fund your education and why?
Why you want to go to particular country or university to study?
What future plans do you have?

As the name signifies, the Statement of Purpose is your personal statement about who you are, what has influenced your career path so far, your professional interests and where you plan to go from here. It need not be a bald statement of facts; several successful SoPs address these questions through anecdotes, stories or by describing their hero. But whether your SoP is subtle or to the point, it must be well written to be successful.

This is because the SoP is the only part of your application packet over which you have full control. Your academic and extra-curricular records are in the past. Most people only take one or two shots at the GMAT, GRE or TOEFL, and these scores could be adversely affected by conditions on the test day. It is important to choose recommendation letter writers carefully, but while you hope they give you the best possible recommendation, this is not within your control.
