Hello. I’m an Infantry Officer in the Army, and wanted to get a gauge of where I should be applying to b-school. I’d really like to end up in management consulting with a big firm, location immateriel. Here’s a little about myself:
-BA in Political Science from the University of San Diego (3.2 GPA)
1. Infantry Platoon Leader in charge of 40 personnel in Iraq (2 years); Bronze Star for service.
2. Infantry Company Executive Officer (1 year): Ran the daily operations of a 130 man infantry company, supervising training, logistics, maintenance, etc. Planned training.
3. Operations Officer (1 year): Responsible for synchronizing and planning near term activities for a 2800 Soldier Regiment, which serves as the Opposing Force for 10 Brigade Combat Teams, annually, preparing for combat deployments.
4. Horse Detachment Commander (1 year): Interacted with higher level commands and the public to provide horses, mules, and goats for training exercises as well as ceremonial roles during parades, public events and demonstrations.
I haven’t taken the GMAT yet; in your response, could you please indicate what GMAT score I’d have to receive to get into the given schools. Thanks for any answers!
It would seem to me that with a GMAT score near the school’s median, you would be OK but you may want to post this on the Ask AdmissionsConsultants thread for a more expert answer. (Be sure to click “Reply to Topic” and not “New Topic.”
