About Me:

I’m a current active duty, Marine Corps Intelligence Officer serving as a Company Executive Officer for a company of 155 Marines.

Before joining the Marine Corps, I worked for a Fortune 500 tech company in sales and biz dev.

    Hello Mr. Marine Executive Officer!
    Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Thanks for posting.
    B-schools LOVE military candidates, especially Marines! So assuming strong application executive, I think you will do well at McCombs, Fuqua, and Kellogg…although Kellogg may be a bit tougher given your GPA. (Please apply R1 to Kellogg. In the past, they’ve said that by the time R2 comes around, they have too many military candidates.)
    You may also want to look at Darden and Ross…both have great consulting placement and both LOVE military candidates. That Ross application — assuming it stays the same — is pretty easy to execute on as well. (Only one LoR!)
    I wish you all the best for this process. Thank you for your service!
    Krista
