Dude, put in some honest effort first. Atleast write your SOP using c-o-m-p-l-e-t-e words/sentences. If you wish to use SMS lingo in your SOP, which is your own right, don't expect people to put in effort for you
Which is really neither here or there. Are you sure you want to write this? If absolutely so, go ahead. Maybe there is a point here that i am missing
same as before
two or three observations
1. Its unbelievably large and unwieldy para & most of the times, you are belaboring the point.
1. Depends on how the SOP has been written/drafted
2. Yes, they are permitted. Any form of SOP is permitted as long as its written down

which begets the question , why shift? lets see if the subsequent para answers that.
The question in para 1 remains unanswered. This is just a restatement of what one can reasonably infer from P1
why the heck would anyone want you to drive/synchronise them anywhere? If they are your career ...

Plz go through the rephrased SOP:
Critics argue over Managers are born or they are made. In my opinion a person who has the inherent qualities, further polished by the education or experience has the potential to ...

good intro! atleast, it tells the panel right off what you want to do in life. nice ! i like it ;)
Gimme somewhere to nitpick! i hope you are as confident about these topics as you sound in the SOP. this is a sure-shot invitation for the panel to start grilling you on anything related to finan...
Atleast attribute it to poor old Aristotle
now thats a nice introduction. Compact and succint. good show! just mind the grammar a bit, willya ? But yes, which competencies are we talking about? team chemistry & organizing skills, according to you. that's it ? surely, the world is bigger than t...
first up! word limit is your headache, not mine. i'll review, not redraft!

whats the connection between your QA scores and interpersonal skills! hello!
Very opinionated way to begin a SOP, won't you agree ? Suppose some panelist becomes fixated on this...then what happens? be prepared to defend your views at length.
interesting! now why would anyone want to make you the CEO of their organization? What skills do you have and which ones do you ...

Tru fakt! how does it fit in with the rest of the SOP, i wonder!
what is a technical year? And excuse me, who are you? i don't see a line about you/your personality/etc in the first two paras about you.
looks like half a hack job from the site and a half-baked career plan at best. As you've...
