Mr. Captain CornDawg

About Me:

I am looking at an EMBA. I have 17-years in the Active Duty Army and in the last 8-years I have been serving in leadership in the Army Special Operations organization that has a >1% selection rate. I was also rated as the top performer in my career field for 4-consecutive years. I led teams and individuals conducting worldwide activities resulting in DoD and Intelligence Community awards for elite performance in 2018 and 2019. I am also a Purple Heart recipient and looking to apply as a Pat Tillman Scholar – Cohort 2022.

Quant is lower than ideal; however, I took the GRE for a Ph.D. program where Quant was not considered a factor and did not study. I could probably raise to the lower 150s, but the max total GRE score is unlikely to break 315. My GRE expires in April 2021, and I will need to retake it.

Big Life Wins:

– Developed organizational policy, now used as standard across US Special Operations Command encompassing 100 organizations and 1,500 personnel.
– Organizational change leadership increasing section’s size by 750% in 24-months, reprioritized mission and activities resulting in DoD recognition for elite performance 12-months after instituting change.

Post MBA Goal:

Private sector transition, considering major consulting firms (McKinsey, Bain, BCG, etc.). Primarily looking for job placement in Seattle area, not tied to anything specific; however, seeking a better balance between compensation relative to time and stress than currently receiving in the military. Ultimately looking to make a leadership impact in the private sector, I have already accomplished this at high-level in the military, and want to take those experiences and develop others. I would eventually like to support Veterans’ Transition organizations, mainly those within the Special Operations Community, which are currently helping me during my own transition. I plan to ‘retire’ at 50 (12-years post-MBA) and focus on non-profit/NGO activities overseas, potentially with my son when he graduates college.


Target School: Duke Fuqua
