Any other military waiting on Wharton's Thursday decision?


Not me but I have two buddies who are waiting on the decision. Best of luck!

While I'm waiting for Kellogg and Tuck, I've decided to steer clear of the forums, livewire, etc. Thinking about taking some PTO to go skiing and just leaving my phone at home. Sitting around staring at my phone last week was excruciating.

I don't blame you. It's not much fun being glued to your phone at work and at home constantly refreshing web pages and email.

In at Oxford and Cambridge. I'm going to apply to some US schools and see how things go. But certainly can't complain about my backups.

Congrats! Have you already applied R2 or are you planning to do so in the next few days? Which schools are on your R2 list?

Thanks! I have applied. HBS, Wharton, Booth, CBS, and LBS. We will see how they go, but to be honest, it will take a lot to knock off Cambridge. I was super impressed by their program, their individualization of your curriculum, the very international class. Not to mention I will be living in Cambridge and want to work in London after business school.

So if you served in the military as a non-officer(private to petty sergeant), but you had some interesting work there(translated forensics textbooks, participated in important investigations et cetera, worked with generals), would that count as good experience for an MBA, or does the fact of having been not an officer but a foot soldier discount its value?

Enlisted vs Officer won't have an affect. What will have a major effect is how you tie in your experiences in the military with your "story" while applying to school.

Military is military in the eyes of adcom -- they care about experiences, not rank.

Enlisted personnel are underrepresented in top MBA programs relative to officers for a few reasons...one, I don't think many apply in the first place either because they don't understand what an MBA is all about and/or don't think they'll be competitive for top schools. Two, a lot of American enlisted guys/gals shoot themselves in the foot by using their GI Bill or tuition assistance on less-than-challenging bachelor degrees from less-than-reputable schools while on active duty, and difficulty of undergrad school/major plays a big part in admission odds for MBA programs.

I had two former enlisted guys in my HBS class -- one Air Force PJ and one Army comm guy. They left active duty and got undergrad degrees at Dartmouth and Georgia Tech, respectively, before applying to HBS. My guess is that they probably would not have been admitted to HBS if they'd gotten online degrees from U of Phoenix or University of Maryland University College instead of where they did.

Thanks, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Things are looking good so far, have interviews at Booth and Darden. Don, I see you have a few interviews, congratulations. Have you done them yet?

Interviewed at McCombs and Anderson, headed to Fuqua in two weeks to interview there. Good luck at Booth, my interview went great but I ultimately got denied - probably my low GMAT score. It was straightforward - I studied the clear admit interview archive.
