Note, I’m will apply to B-schools during R1 in 2020. I will begin B-school in the fall of 2021 as a member of the class of 2023. I say that to make it clear that I have some time to work on my profile. My below profile details the work experience I will have when I apply.

Male, white, 29 years old.

GMAT: 690 unofficial. 45Q 40V IR 7 on 13 January 2017

GPA: 3.82 at United States Military Academy at West Point. B.S. in Economics with Honors.

Work Experience:
7 years in the United States Army. Served as an Infantry Officer.

Graduate of U.S. Army Ranger and Airborne School.

3 years assigned to an airborne brigade in Vicenza, Italy. During that time I serve as a Platoon Leader (Manager) leading 40 Soldiers, Company Executive Officer (Deputy Senior Manager) and Battalion Logistics Officer (managed/coordinated logistical requirements for 800 man unit across multiple international borders).

Currently assigned to University of New Hampshire where I serve as an Assistant Professor of Military Science. I train prospective Army Officers in leadership and military tactics.

Goals post MBA:
Looking to obtain a role as an operations or management consultant. My story goes something like: I had an education by experience on the fundamentals of leadership in the Army. I need the experience and education an MBA provides to give me the tools to help companies reach their maximum utilization of their systems and human capital.

Extracurriculars:
Judo assistant coach for UNH club team

My top schools in order:
Harvard
Wharton
Sloan
Kellogg
Booth

Any advice or tips are appreciated.

Honestly dude,
You have a solid gold profile. With a mediocre GMAT. Sooooo main task is easy enough to define: Get that GMAT higher.

I think you would still have chances with your current GMAT due to your profile, but hey... make it easier for them, yeah?

As for what you can do besides that, probably the first thing that comes to mind is do some volunteer work at a good place, preferably in a leadership position.


Other than that, allow me to paste a list of ideas here:
- Definitely do at least one if not real real volunteer works while you are working. The BEST possible volunteer work is anything that has to do with leadership or fundraising, so if you see those opportunities, jump on them!

- Make sure you do the best possible at work, taking any opportunities to lead, to get involved in social events, to advance at work, and remain at the top.

- Likewise try and keep up your life! What I mean is that schools LOVE candidates who have a broad range of activities and interests. So sports, culture, whatever. As always, if it is leadership roles you are taking on they are better than non-leadership roles.

- If you have any interest in entrepreneurship as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

- If you have any interest in politics as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

There are probably more things that I am not yet thinking about, but this is a very good place to start!


Good luck dude,
