I guess I did not make myself clear. Sorry about that.

Yes, I meant in the SOP. Though my concern is that since it is something I plan to do in future - should I mention that as is? Will they just take it at face value that I plan to complete the course in future? So should I mention about the future aspect is the doubt.

I think of it this way: sure, this is something you're planning for the future, and that it might even be something you might not end up doing, but then again, so is an MS in the first place. Now, I know the two things aren't directly comparable, but the point is that if talking about one set of plans is good, then why not another? Especially if you can talk about it in a line, and then if you can use the next line to tell the AdCom why that MOOC would help in your MS.

That said, just talking about something that may or may not actually happen isn't of much use. So, mention the fact that you're planning to complete a MOOC, in your SOP, but don't expect it to make much of a difference. Nevertheless, if the choice is between not mentioning it at all, or mentioning it where it may or may not matter, I'd pick the latter, because there isn't any harm in doing so.


1) Please mention as many details as possible about your academics, research and work-ex, in terms of projects worked on, technologies used, roles/responsibilities handled, papers published/presented, awards/honors obtained, etc. All those have to be put in the misc details section of your UniSearch profile if you expect any help on Edulix. Also, before requesting for profile evaluations, please go through this excellent post.

2) Please take some time out to read these three threads in their entirety. PLEASE do that before asking questions about universities from a comparison perspective, or jobs, or coursework, or H-1B visas, or "placements", irrespective of which univ/department/program/major you're applying to.

I love to read, and then I regurgitate. I write - a lot - as my posts here and on other outlets would show. I do not make apologies for what I write (and how long it is). I do not sugarcoat things either. I don't tolerate vague questions, for any reasons - ignorance arising out of an inability to locate information when the necessary tools to do so (i.e. the internet, libraries, university websites, other forums/bulletin boards, etc.) are readily available, is not any kind of an acceptable excuse.

Okay then I will mention it if there in no harm - because that was the only concern.
Thank you!
And I liked that analogy! Smile

So I am working on my colleges and will start work on my SOP. I'll update once I finalize the list.
Do you () also help in SOP evaluation?

I used to, very regularly, in fact. This year, I may or may not be able to do that, depending on my workload a few weeks from now. Contact me about SOP evals next month or so, and I'll have a better idea then.
