Hi jdw,

Thanks for posting. The schools you have listed think very highly of military candidates. I recommend reading this article on business schools and military candidates: ... ss-school/

This being said, the schools listed are some of the most competitive MBA programs in the world. If you are determined to go to business school next year, I recommend including safety schools, however if you are fine with waiting an additional year if things do not work out as planned, then you should not add more schools. No matter what, you should not apply to schools you know you will not want to attend.

Hope this was of help.
