    cv and statement of purpose

    Sponsored Ad:
    In the statement of purpose I will write about my research experience. However, since I already did that in my CV, is that a bit repetitive? Or should I remove the description of my research experience in cv, leaving only the headline? (for example, research assistant for professor X from 2019-2020; master thesis from 2020-2021)

    The statement of purpose shouldn't just rehash what is on your CV.

    In our admissions process, we just want to know a little bit about you. Do you have a sense of what a PhD in economics is, do your broad research interests line up with our department, and can you communicate well. Most people aren't helped or hurt by their statement in our admissions process.

    I dont mean to rehash cv, but some parts are going to be repetitive. For example in my CV I talk about research experience, in sop I talk about it again. Is that going to be a problem? (obviously there are many many other things in sop such as background, interest, fit,...)

    Of course it is ok to add details in the SOP about your research position. When I say don't rehash the CV, I mean that the statement of purpose should go beyond what we can read in the CV.
