Hi Consultant,

I am ex military candidate with a total WE of 11.5 years ( 10 years in Indian army + 1.5 years in Support function in an IT company, corporate experience). My military experience was concentrated on Supply chain Management & Logistics.
My Gmat Score is 670 ( 49 Q , 31 V) , 4.5 AWA. I am quite active in co-curricular and community activities.

I intend to apply for B-Schools this year i.e. Class starting in 2015. I need you to recommend schools which I can apply comfortably according to my profile.
I am open to US, Canada & India and will prefer full time MBA( 1 /2 year).

Thanks .

Hi there,

Thanks for your post. So military experience can be a plus in MBA admissions IF you are able to confidently describe a) the leadership and teamwork and other skills gained that are very transferable to the business world, and b) the WHY behind your application-- why an MBA? What are your career plans ? etc.

However you will a good deal older than many applicants with a lot more experience, which could become a bit of a challenge as well. I am not sure exactly what your goals are or what you are looking for in a school, and there are a lot of factors to consider. I'd direct you for better chances, outside the top 30-35 or so in the US (see US News & World Report rankings) and those outside top 20 or so outside the US (consult FT rankings for example). For more on choosing schools, check out our free download at: http://info.mbamission.com/Selecting-Yo ... ram-E-Book.

Keep us posted, and good luck!
