1) Four years as an infantry officer(Captain) in the Marine Corps including two combat deployments to Afghanistan. One deployment as a platoon commander at an isolated position where I was directly responsible for the welfare of 55 Marines in addition mission accomplishment. One deployment on the battalion staff as an operations officer responsible for higher level planning and advising for future operations in addition to supervising and coordinating current operations. Leadership positions and mentoring were enduring throughout the four years.
2) Not taken yet, estimate 680-720.
3) College info: Loyola Marymount University, GPA 3.18/4 (demonstrated solid upward trend in higher level courses), Business Administration (Entrepreneurship concentration), 2007.
4) Extracurricular:
College: Fraternity President: Lead and planned multiple community service projects as member and president, Officer Candidate School, Baseball Coach
Post-college: The Basic School (USMC Officer Course), Infantry Officer Course, SCUBA Diving, Paragliding
5) Important certifications: None
5) Your target programs:
Reach: HSB, Haas, Stanford
Secondary: Georgetown, McCombs, University of Washington

Goals: Strategic consulting for DoD to bring entrepreneurial mindset to higher levels of the military.

I am in the beginning stages of the admissions processes and want to get a reality check before I go further down the road. Thank you, in advance.

You're pretty realistic. :-) HBS, Haas, and Stanford would be stretches for you, especially if your GMAT is at the lower end of that range.

You have a competitive profile for your "secondary" choices. You may also want to consider Darden and UCLA as being in between the primary and the secondary.

Best,
Linda
