Hoping to get some feedback on my profile. Thanks in advance for any input! My background:

    B.S., magna cum laude, in Finance from Big 10 school
    3.92/4.00 GPA
    1 of 10 to receive a senior award out of class of 1500
    Beta Gamma Sigma (top 7%)
    Full-tuition ROTC scholarship

720 -- 49Q 39V (planning on retaking shortly)

Work Experience
    Mid-market investment banking internship during undergrad
    Bulge-bracket sales and trading internship
    Two years at the same bulge-bracket after graduation in sales and trading
    My school is not-quite a "target" so definitely difficult (but not impossible) positions to get
    Simultaneously, a Lieutenant in the Army National Guard (I have my sales and trading position full-time and attend drill for the National Guard one weekend a month).
    One deployment with the National Guard
    Worth noting that I've only come across two other National Guardsmen who hold similar Wall Street jobs, so it's a relatively unique angle (most military applicants did x years of active duty then try to transition to get an MBA)

    Good amount in college: business fraternity positions, clubs in ROTC, finance clubs
    Post college: some mentoring and assisting veterans who are transitioning into undergrad

Target Schools
    Yale SOM

Looking forward for your feedback and criticism. Thanks again!

You definitely have a good shot at these schools & if you can get your GMAT up all the better! The adcom loves military applicants & you've got a strong undergrad GPA & strong work experience as well. You're definitely in a good position to apply to these schools assuming some strong essays & LORs. One thing that will also be critical are your post-MBA goals since your why MBA/why our school rests on those. That will help you narrow your list of schools as well.
