Hi ramaswamibalaji,

Thanks so much for writing. You are at the perfect age for applying to business school, and you have an excellent GMAT score, so those are both assets for you in the application process. You also have unique professional experience, which could make for a very compelling essay if you speak about it in the right way. My colleagues and I at Stratus Prep have worked successfully with many military officers, so we know how to communicate that experience in relation to an MBA.

You do have a good chance at the schools you mentioned, but adding some more extracurricular/volunteer leadership experience would be very helpful. Your high school and college experience will not be as meaningful in your application since they were several years ago.

Good luck!

Shawn
