Linda / Paul,
I was wondering if you have any advice for NYU's essay 3 - "Please describe yourself to your MBA classmates. You may use any method to convey your message (e.g. words, illustrations). Feel free to be creative."
Should I show my soft skills / personal side or is it more of the professional side? Any details you can provide would be helpful.
It would be a mistake to focus an NYU 3 essay primarily on the professional side, though professional experiences could be part of the material you refer to in decsribing what makes you unique (e.g., unusual industry, six months working in Moscow, etc.). See Accepted.com
