Mr. Army Officer in Tech

About Me:

Hey everyone! I’m currently an Army Officer stationed in the southern United States applying to the below schools. I’ve had an amazing and impactful experience the last four years but I am ready for change. I hope to bring leadership and people skills to a classroom in the near future!

How can I best leverage my App Development business on my resume/application in conjunction with my veteran status? I’ve taken the GRE 3 times and I’m concerned it’s not high enough to offset my low GPA in regards to my target schools, any advice here?


Undergrad School: U.S. Military Academy

Undergrad Major: Civil Engineering

GPA: 3.1

GRE: 322

Age: 27,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: iOS App Developer (Business Owner) and, Service to School Undergrad Ambassador.

Work History:

Title: Army Artillery Officer

Industry: Government / Military

Company: Army

Length of Employment: 4 yrs

Big Life Wins:

1) I was extremely fortunate to be selected to serve as an operations officer with a special forces unit for a deployment to the Middle East.
2) I am currently using the knowledge gained from my app development business to work with an outside agency to develop workflow management software for the Army.

Post MBA Goal:

I would like to initially land in Austin, TX due to family. Tech appeals to me due to my current business as well as the current product development project I am undertaking at work.


Target School: Wharton

Status: Open

Considering: Kellogg, Ross, McCombs School of Business, Tepper

And on the side, you’ve shown initiative through your app development work, and exposure to the business world which should make your reasons for pursuing an MBA more credible. I would present that separately on your resume, perhaps a military experience section, followed by an entrepreneurial experience section.
