Marine Officer (artillery) with 4 years active duty service. Left USMC in February 2015. Target schools are Booth, Darden, Yale, Fuqua, Owen, McDonough (dual degree MSFS/MBA). Undergrad GPA 3.5

Currently studying for the GMAT and I plan on taking it in spring 2016. Depending on how I score, I may apply to all the top 10 schools because why not.

Something here to share from a Canadian's perspective.

Judging from the schools you have on your mind (Wharton '18, Booth PT '18, Sloan '18, CBS '18), you are most likely one of the more qualified applicants (GMAT 700+, GPA 3.5+), and that tells me you are likely going to get a nice scholarships from a good American school. Maybe Harvard will not give you 50k, but a full ride from the top 15~top 20 might be possible. Scholarships here in Canada are quite unimpressive. I only know of

The B-School Application | Cornell Johnson Essay: “Targeted Job Type” Breakdown http://gmatclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1546258&#p1546258


FROM The MBA Manual: Cornell Johnson Essay: “Targeted Job Type” Breakdown




This is going to be a shorter post for two reasons:  one, the essay is pretty black and white, and two, the essay is very short (2000 characters max).  The prompt is as follows:

“What is the job that you would like to have immediately upon graduating with your MBA? (2000 character limit, including formatting characters)“

Let’s break thisdown.

1.  Frame (~300-350 characters)

  • Give the ad-com a bit of background of the field you’re seeking to break into.  Try to think of how you would answer the question, “why does this matter?” and explain why you want to do what you’re trying to do.  Keep it brief at 2 to 3 sentences.
  • “Uncontrollable barriers should not have the ability to hamper people’s ability to learn, grow, and live a life that they are happy with. Unfortunately, they can and often do, and this truth is one of the most grossly unjust parts of life. This is why I wish to dedicate myself to working ceaselessly to eradicate these barriers.”

I've been doing a lot of research as to when I should apply (like you I am also an engineer but with slightly less work experience). It seems that the best time to apply for an engineer would be around 4-5 years of exp at matriculation. I think you are pretty much at that mark so it definitely wouldn't hurt you to apply this fall.
