    Hi Mr. Military Quant, this is Kristen from MBA Prep School. Firstly, thank you for your service. While you haven’t followed the path well traveled, I find it more impressive that you have paved your own way. Your hard work got you to Princeton and Amazon, no small feat! Your GMAT score is also a strong plus. Vets and active duty military applicants are typically viewed very favorably by Admissions Committees, as they naturally exhibit a lot of leadership and collaboration. Admissions officers will definitely take note of your medals, but they will also want to hear about what you did during your deployment. I’m not clear on what your role is at Amazon; since you’ve only been there a year at this point, you …

    So let’s start this off with a sincere thank you for your service. Your life journey so far is fascinating. I love that you started in community college and ended up at Princeton. That is an amazing accomplishment and tells me a low about your smarts, ambition and desire to succeed. The fact that you were awarded three medals for your service in Afghanistan and graduated at the top of your two Marine classes is super impressive as well. While it’s not clear what you are doing for Amazon, it would make a very big difference if you were in some sort of leadership role at the company. That could be crucial to getting an admit from HBS. Based on your story and your stats, …

    Thank you for your service. Congratulations on your degree from Princeton. However, you post-MBA career aspirations appear to be confusing Asset management and private equity tend to appeal to two different types of individuals. Also, indicating that you are willing to work in either New York or the Bay Area indicates too much flexibility. For the purposes of the application, choose choose one geographic area. Either one is fine. Your actual plans, could be something different.
