    If you could get that GMAT score up to 650, I would say you have a very good shot at Georgetown. I agree with some of the advice given to you about your post-MBA goals and the need to demonstrate why you think the MBA will help you achieve them. If you are applying now, your chances are considerably better than they will be next year. There’s a lot to like here. I hope you get the chance to show them what you can do.

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Hi Ms. Airforce! This is Talon Rindels, Sr. Admissions Consultant for the MBA Exchange. Your story is touching and I adore/admire how you define success! That said, I am having a hard time understanding why you would need an MBA to achieve success as you define it by your Post-MBA goal. Perhaps, you could help us to better understand more specifics on the type of job/career you’d be looking for after your MBA. It almost sounds like you want to be a career coach or something in a related field and if so, I am not so sure that you need an MBA to score your dream job! On top of the questions around your goals, I have given …

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 10%

    Hi, Ms. Air Force, this is Julie-Anne Heafey from mbaMission. Thank you for your service.
    Hmmm, as I read your profile, I still have some basic questions on your goals and what your timeline is for transitioning out of the military (if that is your plan). Knowing more about those two things would have been very helpful. For any MBA, you’ll need to explain where you’re going and how the degree will help you get there, and your description above is rather fuzzy. You don’t have to be precise on your title and employer, but you’ll need to give the admissions committees a sense that you’ve thought through where you’re going and why you need an MBA to do it. …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi Ms. Air Force, Melisa from Stratus Admissions here. Thank you for your service. Your team player attitude will be an asset to your application to Georgetown. Your military service and being a female (Georgetown’s female % has dropped lately, and is close to the lowest in the Top 25) will also be working for you. Unfortunately, you will need to overcome your low GMAT score. If you could re-take (I know it is painful thought, sorry!) you would increase your chances – ideally into the mid 80% range. And I would want to dig deeper into your goals. An MBA is a good launching platform from military service if an MBA will give you skills that will help in your ideal post-MBA career. I’d …

    Excellent undergraduate GPA accompanied by a very low GMAT score and lack of any well articulated purpose for seeking an MBA suggests that your chance for admission to Georgetown-McDonough's MBA program is well below average. Moreover, as the holder of an undergraduate degree in business and real world experience as a restaurant manager, it is not clear as to how you would benefit from earning an MBA and how an MBA program would benefit from your presence.
