    Hi Mr. Solider Boy, Kristen from MBA Prep School here. First of all, thank you for your service. As a former MIT Sloan adcom, I felt compelled to comment on your profile. You really have the makings of an outstanding MBA applicant. Your academics at West Point are stellar and being awarded a Fulbright is a mark of excellence; your GMAT is perhaps a little lower than the average at your target schools, but it’s in the ballpark and shows you have the quantitative aptitude necessary to success in business school. Your differentiators, however, are your community engagement and professional success. As a rule, military applicants tend to be viewed very favorable by Admissions officers due to the inherent leadership qualities and experiences they possess. …

    Mr. Soldier Boy, you have the right stuff to at the very least get an interview invite at HBS. Other than a GMAT score that is 10 points below the class average for Harvard, you have a near perfect application and profile. HBS loves West Pointers. Sure, the HBS Class of 2020 had 12 students from the United States Naval Academy versus seven from West Point but that is as much a consequence of who likely was in the pool two years earlier than anything else. Your 3.7 GPA while playing a demanding division one sport should work well. Along with your Fulbright, there should be no doubt that you can handle the core–and more importantly shouldn’t need to retake the GMAT to aim for …

    Always important to remember that elite college admissions can be somewhat random. And with an acceptance rate of just 12%, Harvard is rejecting really great people all the time. So if your odds are 35%, that's three times better than the overall admit rate.

    100%- Harvard would be silly not to accept him. His drive and heart alone would be enough let alone his intelligence and commitment to a better world.
