Hey there!
Great to hear form you.
Overall you have a very solid profile with tons of leadership, which is great!
The first thing I can say is that in order to make a great application, you need to think about how to make your experience RELEVANT to B-school. You have leadership of men, which is the MOST important thing. But at the same time, just cause you are good at doing that in the military doesn't necessarily mean that you will be good at that in a civil situation.

And I think the KEY to that is to figure out your GOAL: Right now "I want to be CEO" isn't really a very good or precise goal. Of course you want to be CEO! Who doesn't!? But what do you want to DO? WHERE do you want to work? What is your dream to accomplish?

That will be the key.

AND of course your GMAT. There is a HUGE difference between a 700, a 740 and a 770. So before we get into school lists and so on, I think:
1. Think about your goals
2. Get your GMAT score.

And then come back to us,
If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask,
Best,
JF

Allrighty, Well if you were to get a 720, I'd say a mix of Top20 schools would be about right for you. Just focusing on Top10 would be too hard given your background, but with a super solid GMAT, Top 20 should be good.

I would also suggest working a bit more on your long-term goals. "Becoming an entrepreneur" or "CEO" is too vague. What do you want to DO. What effect do you have on the world? what KIND of company do you want to lead? And how does this tie in to your past?


I hope this helps!!!
Best,
Jon Frank
