Hey Active Duty personnel and Vets!

I just applied to UC Irvine, MSU Broad, Rice and Texas A&M, all in the Last rounds. Already had interviews with Irvine, MSU, Rice last week and waiting on TA&M interview invite. I do not have the highest GMAT, but I do have a wealth of experience (7+ years as a Supply Officer in the Navy, Contracting Officer, 2011 Japanese Tsunami, 30-countries of international experience), spent a month at Darden for a Navy executive MBA course and I went to a great undergrad California University. Currently stationed in the Middle-East. I let you know what schools I get into, if any. However, I applied to MSU because of their SCM program. I applied to Rice and TA&M because of their strong employment statistics and international business rankings. I applied to UC Irvine because it is very close to home and has 100% employment guarantee after 6-months, but sadly, not a Veterans Business Association. Rice and MSU have great Veterans associations, like Darden, so hopefully I'll get accepted to one of those schools. 100% post 9/11 GI Bill.

I'll keep you informed.

I know this sounds crazy, but is ANYONE in here doing MBA & ROTC?

I seriously doubt it would be possible, and I can't even think of a way that it would be beneficial to either your military or civilian career. What are your reasons for considering that route?

Are there any enlisted military folks who have applied with low GPA's and been successful? I have yet to take the GMAT, but I've been studying for a couple weeks and plan on putting in at least 14 hours a week for 2 months in preparation because I know I have to crush it. I'd be interested in hearing any advice that could help in my application process!
