Next App - NYU Stern

After submitting two applications last week on 31st Oct, i haven't done much till now on the app front. I kind of relaxed even on the weekend, and now i am feeling the heat again.

NYU Stern R1 is due on November 15 and i still haven't completed even the first draft for any of the 3 essays. Though the first essay is essentially a career goal essay but it has a much longer word limit compared to the the other 2 apps (Ross, Darden) that i have written. So, i have to put in more stuff in this one and mention some of the things in detail.

The other 2 essays are completely different in Stern. Second essay is about Stern community. Though i have figured out what i have to write in this essay but still i have to pen it down.
The third essay is the real bouncer - "Please describe yourself to the MBA classmates". Now i am not getting any creative idea to put into this one and i am planning to write this one as an essay. But still no specific idea has come to my mind on what i am going to put into it.
I am really in need of some ideas for this one.

Its less than 10 days to go for this application.....i will have to start running from here on...

You already have an experience of submitting two apps. I hope third won't be a problem.
You gotta be creative on that essay.

I know what u must be going thru - stern's third essay is truly a bouncer, and the reason why i dinged stern ;-)
sincere suggestion: dont put in an essay for that one, do whatever else, but no essay; maybe u could do a ppt (it would help in chicago too)if you dont think of anything better

@oops

that’s what the problem is, if i put a ppt for Stern they will know that i got that idea from Chicago. And most importantly, Stern will think that i m keep it as a backup school which is a very wrong impression for them and one that they form very easily. This is because of other strong finance schools like Chicago and Columbia. They really doubt every applicant on whther he has Stern as a dream school or a backup school
So, i have to think of something else. I thought of putting an essay which reveals my personal self. but again that is not something creative or unique. Realling feeling short of ideas on this one ……
but the idea behind this essay is certainly to know you in a personal way, but in a creative way
give me some idea

@runningturtle

Creative :) that is where the whole problem is, i have been tthinking about this one but not able to finalize anything on this till now.
