If I want to get into NYU, how do I WIN them with my ESSAY??

QUESTION
If I want to get into NYU, how do I WIN them with my ESSAY??
I am just an average student. Nothing special.

ANSWER
Tell them why you are so interested in NYU, and what makes it special to you. Try not to whip out the cliches such as, “I’ve always wanted to live in NY, and NYU is such a good university, so it’s the perfect match” or something along those lines.

Is there something unique about NYU that you like? If so, write about it.

Worked for me and my application to Boston College back in the day. I’m assuming it had to be my essay since a couple classmates of mine with nearly identical credentials as mine weren’t accepted into BC.
