I am writing my statement of purpose for grad school admissions. I am applying to the same school I am currently attending for my undergrad because I have a 3 year old son and don't want to move him. When I go on to my phD he will be older and I will look to other schools then. Should I mention in my statement that one of the reasons I chose not to switch schools is because of my son? I am an anthropology major with an archaeology focus. To get a decent job a masters is a minimum and a phD is preffered. My school doesn't offer the phD, only the masters, so I would have to attend a different school anyway when I got to that level. But I am a single mother and grandma and grandpa live only an hour away, so I don't want to disrupt his life when he is so young. As he gets older and is more able to understand, then I will move. Any advice?
