One point to make: Essay 1 should not be broken out into three separate essays. In 2013 they had the three questions marked “a)”, “b)” and “c)” which implied that they wanted the answers separated. They don’t. Write Essay 1 as one essay. The Stern SnarkStrategies Guide digs into how to do it.
[end Stern 2013 questions]
Think about the decisions you have made in your life. Answer the following:
(a) What choices have you made that led you to your current position?
(b) Why pursue an MBA at this point in your life?
(c) What is your career goal upon graduation from NYU Stern? What is your long-term career goal? What I really like about this essay is that Stern is doing all the organizational work for you. (a) What choices have you made that led you to your current position? The core issue is to focus on the choices. What were those moments in your life when you had to make a choice that determined your current professional position? Focus on 1-3 critical choices that led to this position. You need to provide an explanation for your career to the present with an emphasis on your current position, which is based on those choices. Given the space limitations, I don’t suggest using more than 1/3 of your word count for this part of the essay. Focus on providing an explanation that would not be clear from simply reviewing your resume. Your motivations should be made clear. Don’t write a career summary here! Instead help admissions understand you, not just what you have done. (b) Why pursue an MBA at this point in your life? Clearly you need to show why given your present position and future goals, now is the right time to get an MBA. And since you need an MBA, you had better state that you want one from Stern. You could certainly avoid including Stern here, but frankly I think that would be rather foolish. Considering that you have align what you say about wanting an MBA with exactly what Stern can offer you, there is absolutely no value to treating this as a generic answer, make it Stern specific! (c) What is your career goal upon graduation from NYU Stern? What is your long-term career goal? Use at least 1/3 of your essay to explain both your post-MBA career goal and your long-term career goals. The goals you outline should connect very directly with what you intend to gain from Stern as discussed in (b) above as well as in Essay 2. For more about goals, see my analysis of other schools goals statements, such as Stanford’s . Essay 2. Your Stern Experience (500 word maximum, double-spaced, 12-point font)
