Expert's post
You have a good profile for top schools and will likely get attention from these schools. It's a little atypical for military applicants, which can actually work in your favor if you couch it correctly. As you know, you will be competing against others in the military pool who did post UG military service as an officer, then out, then to b-school. This is the most common route, but those applicants generally never have any "real world" experience such as you have. Your "unknown" UG institution could work against you especially for the ivys, but your reason for going to a non-top 25 UG institution is sound. At the end of the day, your target schools reject thousands of well qualified applicants every year. If I were you, I'd throw a couple more schools into the mix from the top 10 but outside the H/S/W golden trio. I realize you have Columbia in the mix, but as an ivy, it's a risk considering your UG school. How about Stern or Sloan as an alternate? Feel free to call our 1-800 number to get a free profile eval from one of our consultants.
