Anyone else feeling the same?

I just dont know where to start from? I have started brain storming ideas.. But I just dont what is the right structure...

For the goals essay.. How much do I put on the path I pursued(incl family background etc), how much do I put in why Chicago .. and how much do I put in for Why MBA... And the short term and long term goals..

I just cant seem to get the hang of it!

Anyone else in the same boat?

I struggled with this too.

It would help to know the exact question but ....

Some kind of structure like this:

-> Where I am now (10%)
-> Where I want to go and WHY immediately post mba. (15%)
-> Where I want to go and WHY in 10 years (15%)
-> How, SPECIFICALLY, this school addresses (60%)
-> Short term goals and needs
What offerings, clubs, classes, culture fit in?
-> Long term goals and needs
What offerings, clubs, classes, culture fit in?
-> Strong closing statment reiterating your interest

I agree with rhyme...I would also try to connect my past with future goals.
