Hello,

You are right. Segregating program is a process, but believe me its worth spending time on.

There are a few factors that affect the choice of school such as

1) Region you want to settle post MBA
2) Choice of type of program (specialization wise / size of batch etc)
3) 2 yr vs 1 yr MBA
4) Learning methods
5) Options of specializations
6) Budget for program (does not apply to all though)

So, What are your goals after MBA ? what do you wanna do post MBA - short term and long term ?

Your GMAT is decent, but i would strongly recommend you to retake if you think you can score high. Higher GMAT score will help you solidify your position and will also help earn some scholarship as well. At the same time GMAT is just a part of application process, rest all depends on your overall application.

Military Experience - Adcoms highly appreciate candidates coming from military background, but you must articulate what you wanna do post MBA. You are going to business school, so they would want to see what your plans post MBA are. Your age is on higher side (as compared to average of 27/28 for US programs), but since you have a military background, you have all reasons to defend it.

Last but not least, as a non traditional applicant, your essays must be stellar and must scream about your reasons for doing an MBA

Hope this helps
