hi I am from an eastern european country where military service is required. If I can not get into an MBA (I applied to several in R2) , I will have to go military for almost a year. My backup plan is to register to a very bad local online mba program and continue my job and reapply to US mba schools next fall. By registering to that school I will be able to postpone my military.
Will I need to be reporting that school when I apply to US schools next year. When I apply in the fall, I will be still registered in that program and probably have a 0.0 gpa (they dont kick you out) . How will the adcom look into this.
If I dont do this process and go to military then by the time I return it would be pass the r2s next year and I would lose another year.
ADCOMs probably won't look favorably on you attempting to dodge military service by enrolling in an academic program you don't intend to complete. They'll likely see it as a symptom of someone who wants to skate by or is dishonest. If you're willing to lie to the government about enrolling in school, what are you going to lie to the school about?
Is there another program you could enroll in and actually finish that might bolster your application instead? Maybe a certificate in finance would make schools more comfortable admitting you instead of raising questions about your character?
