I have finished applying into US schools, and now I turn to other countries. Since I don't think that there is much different between US and Europe (more specifically, UK) in the requirements in the SOP, I plan to just simply reuse it (of course this time I'll use the British spelling checker).
However, in my SOP apply to the US schools, I have a paragraph describes my contribution to GRE learners. While it may help when it serves US committees, I wonder if it would help in Europe ones. Apparently it's because GRE score is not required in Europe. It can be possibly that they don't even know what GRE is for.
Q: So, is it worth the space to mention about the contribution for GRE learners?
My draft is as follows:
I also have contributed to GRE learners community with a refined Anki deck. One powerful flashcard program that is very helpful to learn GRE vocabulary is Anki. Although I have managed to learn a lot of words from existing shared decks, these decks were poorly designed, hindering the effectiveness in memorizing words. Seeing the need to have a well-designed deck, not only for me, but also for the community; I decided to dedicate one month just to create one so that the spaced repetition method could achieve its highest potential. Once complete I posted it on my website. The result was incredible. Every month approximately a hundred visitors download it from my site. Within a couple months this popularity has pushed my site to the front page of Google, and the good news is that I haven't forgotten a single word since.
