Profile Eval - Low GPA, High GMAT, Army officer [#permalink] New post 15 Jul 2010, 03:56
I'll be applying to MBA programs next year. Here are my stats:

White Male, Age 25
GPA: 2.65 , BA History, Top 10 University (US News)
GMAT: 770
Work experience : 4 years on active duty as army intelligence officer, with several leadership positions, deployed to Iraq

Do I have a chance at any of the Top 10-15 MBA programs? I hope that my time as an officer and my GMAT will be enough to offset my poor GPA. My dream school is Dartmouth, can you reccommend any top programs that would look favorably on a high GMAT and military leadership experience, where a low GPA would not be an automatic disqualifier?

Thank you very much for your time.

My hunch is that yes, you'll be competitive. I do have a few questions:

1. What was your undergrad institution? I know that a 2.65 from MIT, Cal Tech, or Princeton would be looked on more favorably than a 2.65 from Harvard or Yale (check the mean GPA scores for the insane inflation levels).

2. What are your hopes post-MBA?
