Also if you have had a rough semester or two (due to e.g. COVID) that effected your performance, use the statement to explain what you have learned from your experience. Also please indicate what 1-4 faculty members (math.wsu.edu/faculty/welcome-gradfaculty.php) you believe you would like to consider working with on your MS or PhD.
