Update. The motivation statement can now also be found on my "About" page.
It's rather late, but I thought it might be worth sharing my motivation statement submitted as part of my application at Georgia Tech. At the point of writing, I was in the last year of my bachelor degree and was struggling to compose a good motivation statement. I would have loved to see examples from other students at the same "career stage" just to get an impression of how to structure a motivation statement and what to include. Instead, as I didn't find any examples, I relied on some basic advice found on webpages or as part of discussions in forums. I hope that my motivation statement will be useful for students that are in the same situation as I was back then.
Note that a summary of my exchange semester, in German, can be found here.
So below, you can find my motivation statement:Motivation Statement
