I don't think its meant for SOP. You should probably just write concisely what's been asked clearly.

what should i write in personal statement?

Personal statement (should be) just another name for your SOP. So yes write your SOP there.

Hi guys, this is my first post on the edulix forums although I'm a frequent lurker. I'll start off by sharing my profile for future applicants and then posing my question to you guys in a subsequent post!

Name - Cinco
Major - Computer Science (Research focus in ML)
GRE TOTAL(Q/V/AWA) - 165/161/4.5
TOEFL - 116
CGPA - 9.49/10.0 (state university - in no way tier 1 lol) (currently in 4th year undergrad)
Certifications/Work Ex/Internships/Publications - 2 conference papers, interned at Google last summer
Course Applied: MSc/MMath in Computer Science (Thesis)

Universities:

University of Waterloo
University of British Columbia
University of Toronto
University of Alberta

I've been officially accepted for the MMath Thesis program at Waterloo after being interviewed by a professor not mentioned in my SOP 2 weeks ago! Haven't heard back from the other 3 yet but I will probably go with Waterloo in any case so I'm totally thrilled!

Okay, I mentioned in my previous post that I had a question for you guys and here it is:

As many of us would be interested in working in Canada after completing our Masters (or PhD), I'm asking this in the context of applying for a Post Graduate Work Permit in Canada.

According to the CIC website, a work permit is issued for the same number of months as your program of study. UW, however, says that the MMath(Thesis) program is a 1-2 year course. How would CIC regard this with respect to issuing me a work permit? Would I be eligible for a 1 year permit, 2 years, or the exact number of months I take to graduate? Would be helpful if somebody already in UWaterloo or who knows someone there could answer as they likely have looked into this already. However, any help you guys could give me would be great.

Thanks!
