How far do you go with it? I admit this is a bit vague but I'd like to hear general advice since I'm still only just starting out on my SOPs.

Are the people reading it professors (so they all at least have a physics PhD) in which case, is it okay to describe the problems I've worked on in reasonably high technical detail? Or is this not worth getting into?

Also, while I'm at it, is it normal to mention academic awards in the SOP? Or is it sufficient if this is in the CV only?
