    Hi Mr. Military Officer! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant. Your leadership experience at the Captain level is going to be highly regarded by business schools.

    This really depends on your test score. As a vet you do have a possibility of getting into some of these schools with a low GPA, but you need to absolutely destroy the test. Source: vet with lower GPA than you admitted to schools from Columbia down.

    Low GPA. Thanks for your service, but you don't have the wow factor for an M7 (or Stern).
