Upon graduation from the ----- school, I plan on staying in banking, my goal is to progress to senior level management and further become the CEO of my own company. My short-term post-MBA goal is to remain at COMPANY X and continue developing my general management skills while working in an intellectually challenging environment. I plan on using these opportunities to gain a greater understanding of the banking markets. In the long term, I plan on starting my own real estate investment trust and real estate development company. An MBA will have enabled me to accomplish both of these goals. In sum, I am applying to SCHOOL X because of its integrated curriculum, its focus on ethics and honor, and its impressive community of students and faculty.

I decided to attend college directly after high school to become a ------ despite the fact that I had a keen interest in real estate and banking. After pursuing schools that offered ------ programs, I attended the University of ---------, as it was one of five schools at the time that had a reputable ----- program. I attended this university for a year. It was during this time that I realized my interests were stronger for real estate and banking.
I returned home and attended ----- University. While attending ------, and taking courses in general studies I decided it would be better for me to take some time off, figure out exactly what it was that I wanted to do and pursue it.
