Law Enforcement to MBA [#permalink] New post 21 Nov 2010, 00:33
It may be time for a career change...any input on where I stand would be greatly appreciated.



- 3 years at one of the largest local pd's in the country (southwest us)
- solid career progression with assignments that includes investigations of homicides, gang activities and narcotics
-enlisted military reservist for 3 years

- 3.5 @ Rutgers (BA)
- 3.5 @ John Jay Collge (MPA)
Did not complete the MPA at John Jay because I moved out of state

- avid runner
- volunteer at a couple local organizations
- involved in alumni association

Short term: transition to a consulting career
Long term: entrepreneurial ventures

Target Schools
- Wharton, Yale SOM, Darden, Duke, Columbia.

Any thoughts or advice are welcome. It is kind of tough to find information on people trying to make the jump like I am.

Your strong academic profile coupled with your non-traditional background should make you a very attractive MBA candidate. The fact that you cannot find many others on your same path is a plus. Most MBA programs seek candidates with diverse backgrounds because they bring different perspectives to the class. Your professional background, GPA, GMAT score and extracurriculars create a strong profile. When completing your applications, be very specific as to how each program's strengths align with your career goals and also in discussing what you can add to an MBA class. Best of luck!
