It takes me years to transition from an aerospace engineering student to a NLP Ph.D. student. I want to share my experience as much as I can, so people can build on top of it to make their experience even better. For my SOP, I have to credit my good friend Nelson F. Liu. I wrote my SOP based on his! I applied twice, and I am also pretty liberal to share the version of my failed attempt. One takeaway for me is that - you need to have a big vision that is grounded with specific past experience.
