I’m a US Army officer looking to transition into consulting when I exit the military.

Additional Candidate Commentary:
I know my GPA is the weakest part of my profile. I’ve attempted to help remedy this by earning my CORe through HBS online to demonstrate my readiness for the academic rigor of top MBA programs. Are there any other portions of my profile that I could strengthen before I begin the application process in 2022?

I hope to join an MBB consulting firm after earning my MBA.

    Hi Mr. Army to MBB, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. Thank you for your service! You’ve asked about strengthening your application in prep for next year’s deadlines – I love that you are planning ahead. As you have mentioned your GPA, one thing you’ll want to assess is the overall quantitative abilities that you can highlight. Your GMAT score is definitely strong, along with your completion of HBX Core. These are going to be more recent indications of your quant abilities. However, if looking at your transcript from Notre Dame, if you did not do well in your quant classes there are 2 other levers you can pull. In addition to the Math for Management course from Berkeley (or UCLA) which would allow you to …
