Sternie hopefuls,

Regarding the goals essays, I like to start from the final legacy you want to leave and back things out from there – Here are two articles about goals essays that many have found helpful:
https://mbaessaycoaching.com/2016/06/14/mba-goals-essay/ and how to apply this in an interview https://mbaessaycoaching.com/2017/03/10/mba-interview-goals-mba/

They don’t necessarily ask Why Stern but THIS IS A TRAP – absolutely definitely include this information! NYU has a bit of an inferiority complex because CBS so you need to reassure them that your motivations are sincere (read: you value what they offer over CBS) The best way to do this is research the school in a number of ways, most importantly, through alumni. Essay sample posted here https://mbaessaycoaching.com/sample-essays/

For the Pick 6 – make sure that there is a lot of variety between images. You want to pass the cocktail party test. People who are interesting are into all kinds of different things. Make sure to show yourself as well rounded and multidimensional, someone who could talk to anyone about at least 1 thing. Keep the images clear, bold and simple given the choice. Because that will have the most impact. Images that do not necessitate a ton of explanation but really speak for themselves.

Make sure to brainstorm with your recommender on the EQ question; it can be tricky. This question is a bit off the beaten path so provide input on the anecdote they choose for that.
