What is up man! Great to hear from ya, and sorry it took me an extra day or two to get back to you.

Honestly bro, let me put it to you this way: you are going to get into business school. : )

I went to HBS, and we had a few marines in my class. And your resume lines up with the best of em.

Now, the trick would be for you to capture your military experience in a way that makes you seem credible in a BUSINESS context. Thats always the trick for our military clients dude--you dont have the strong corporate experience of course, and thats fine. But we will need to spin your military stuff in a way that adds some credibility. Business cred. Street cred, you get what I mean.

And given your background in logistics, we will be able to find a great link Im sure into the consulting space. Youll wanna do some research, and see who is the strongest in the areas where YOU have strengths. And it may not be the big three, McK, Bain, etc.

By the way man, we offer all our military guys 15% discounts, out of respect.

Anyway, keep it real my friend. Best of luck to you.
