Hi Everyone,

It is great to hear so many inspirational success stories from folks on this forum. I too am about to take a big decision of going back to college after working in a dead end job for 12 years and the past two year being a mom.

I would like to get pointers from folks here on how to write a good statement of purpose explaining my reason to go back to college and get a master's degree. Also, I am wondering whether I should explain the 2 year break I took for raising my kid, will that be viewed negatively by the admissions commitee?. Any sample SOP of people with similar profile would be much appreciated. Thanks.
