Finding Statement of Purpose (SOP) samples is not a tough task. You can just browse these online and find many results. But I do understand that you are seeking some quality material, not just hocus-pocus. In that case, I think you should note a few points before going searching for sample SOP and other things like sample LORs and Essays.

First of all, even if it is obvious, consider your SOP, LORs and Essays with extra care. Students literally get rejected with a full GPA and excellent curricular because they fail to provide a good image of themselves. In my experience, I have seen more than enough students that prefer just to go with the guts and prepare their letters accordingly. The result is application rejection. If you have an impressive SOP, it can hide even your lowest grades.

Coming back to the topic, SOP samples. I don’t want to give out random website names for you to go and search for. Instead, I would suggest you check the universities abroad for sample letters. Many universities abroad publish their SOP, LOR and  Essay samples on their websites. Having these will be much more relevant than any other source. Not because they are from original admits, because the university will of course choose to present the best ones, right?

If you don’t find it on the home page, do not lose hope. There are separate sources of a single body university like alumni page, community page, networking site and more. Be sure to check those out as well. There are some trusted sources but since I don't see any credentials that support its credibility I don’t recommend it to anybody.

In my experience, I have known MentR-Me to provide some really good samples of all required letters by a university. If you choose to talk to the experts there they will inform you of everything that you need to know for free. I wouldn’t push it but getting a look by yourself will be more logical. Let me know if you have any more questions.

I hope it helped.
