Graduate School – Statement of Purpose

I typed so furiously my roommate thought my fingers had become infected with a strange disease.

As a software production engineer, I have been truly able to hone my skills and directly apply what I was learning. I
excelled at work and at school, as simultaneously I attended a Bachelor’s program in computer science. I will receive my computer science undergraduate degree this December and hope to immediately enter graduate school the following spring, in the year 2005. Because of the seamless integration of my undergraduate career with my long-term professional in the software developing industry, I am uniquely situated to excel at graduate studies immediately. Furthermore, my motivation and match my experience.
Few classes in my field of choice give me problems, but for some reason, I never quite ap…
