This year's application cycle is complete so it's now time to move on to the military guys/gals who are applying this fall and winter for matriculation in Fall 2019.

Copied/pasted from last year's thread:

And for my only bit of self-promotion in this thread: if you haven't already, check out the MilitaryToBusiness blog for all kinds of valuable (and free) information geared towards military applicants: http://blog.militarytobusiness.com/

We offer everything from a la carte resume reviews to comprehensive package deals that cover overall application strategy, picking target schools, personal branding, career goals, managing recommenders, essay strategy, resume/essay edits, and interview prep -- and we do so at prices that are very competitive relative to other options out there.

MBA - Military Service until August  [#permalink]

New post 09 Jun 2018, 09:07
Greetings!

I will be applying for U.S. full time MBA programs the coming academic year for September 2019 admission. Unfortunately I complete my military services in August 2019 and I saw in many Universities websites that for International Students the program starts from Mid-August.

Can I still apply and enroll even if I don't attend some of the ''August Manadatory'' orientation events/week for International Students? Do they give exceptions in these cases or I will be forced to miss the entire academic year?(I hope not, fingers crossed)

Thank you

That's the sort of thing that will vary from school to school based on their start date and whether their "mandatory" orientation events are truly mandatory.

My guess is that most schools would be flexible in a situation like yours -- best bet is to ask current students or someone on adcom at the schools you're targeting.

Hi Fellow Student Veterans,

My name is Matthew Cowsert. I recently graduated from NYU Stern's full-time MBA program, and I'm headed to work for Amazon as a Technical Product Manager in Seattle in July.

Before Stern, I worked in the U.S. Army for seven years. While I’ve been in school for the last two years, I did pro-bono admissions consulting for veterans through the non-profit Service to School. I realized through this process that there is a gap in the pre-transition process for military veterans. I was inspired to write a book to help other veterans successfully transition from their military service to their next career.

The book, What’s Next? A Military Veteran’s Guide to Maximizing Your MBA https://smile.amazon.com/Whats-Next-Military-Veterans-Maximizing/dp/1732431213/ is available online from Amazon. I’ve also launched a companion site called Next Vets at https://www.nextvets.com for the downloadable resources discussed in the book.

If you are interested, check out the book and website. Best of luck, you are all going to crush it.

Best,

Matt Cowsert

When in August would you complete your military service?

I would imagine schools would have some flexibility here (especially for military service), but it probably depends on each school, so it's a bit hard to give you a blanket answer.

From a networking / making friends perspective, the orientation weeks are really great opportunities to meet your classmates and form connections with your class. Many friendships are formed during those initial events and it's possible (not saying it will happen) that you might feel a bit left out if you end up missing the mandatory events.

Hey all - this is a bit early for folks here, but wanted to put it on your radar. Google has been hosting the "Google Student Veteran Summit" for about 4 years now for newly-admitted MBAs: https://buildyourfuture.withgoogle.com/ ... ew-content

Great to keep on your radar as you are thinking about career goals - I found Google to be incredibly supportive of vets while I interned and worked there.

Very cool to see all the resources being posted here. I'd like to add one more - I interviewed a former navy intelligence officer turned Harvard MBA turned management consultant, to try to distill his lessons learned.

Hope you find it helpful!
