Stratus experts. When you are able, I could use some sage advice on my profile.

*3.2/4.0 from a top 30. History Major, Geophysics minor
*Varsity Lacrosse, ROTC
*GRE: 324 (162 V, 162 Q). On the ETS converter that comes to a 700 GMAT

Work Experience : 8 Years Navy SEAL Officer. 5 Deployments to date with combat.
-Consistent leadership in a variety of austere and high profile locations.
-Senior level coordination within DOD
-Excellent lessons learned in terms of personnel management
-Task Unit commander in charge of $25M in equipment overseas.

Extra Curricular: Involved heavily in several charity foundations and recruiting campaigns in support of the SEAL community.
-Repeated visitor to my Alma Mater as a speaker on Leadership for the Athletic Department.
-Volunteered at numerous foundation events for the Wounded Warrior Foundation, Navy SEAL Foundation, Etc.


Future goals:
I love the experience of leading people and I have a passion for working within small teams. I also feel as if the driving economic forces of today's global environment are the most significant. While I think I could find reasonable employment within the private sector, I am looking for a management role. General Management seems like a great fit for me.
My decision to take the GRE is likely to be an issue. I chose to take it because I am applying to several Policy schools as part of a dual degree option. Princeton-Woodrow Wilson School and Yale-Jackson School among others only accept the GRE.

Summary: I feel I can articulate my leadership experience and I actively stay in touch with fellow members of my community who are now in business school. I also feel that my essays will have tangible examples of what I think ADCOMs are looking for. I will not be making a move to business school for a few years but I have spent some time getting to know the process. GRE is at about the 90th percentile according to the ETS convertor. Given what I have to work with now though, how do I look for the following schools?

Yale SOM

QUESTION: I have to complete a micro and macro-economic pre-requisite for two of the policy schools to which I will be applying (Yale-Jackson, Princeton-WW). This will be online, of course whenever I get free time.

I have a finite amount of time with an active duty assignment leading up to application season in the fall. Do you think macro and micro will be valid additions to an alternative transcript to be used for B-School applications?
