  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 60%

    First off, much appreciation and a sincere thank you for your service to our country and our people. 16+ years with a record of accomplishment makes me want to salute you! You have a big and important job in managing global sourcing of equipment and personnel for more than 20,000 Marines.

    Thank you for your service. Undergraduate school isn’t doing you any favors. Low test scores. Do you mean you got 152 on each of your GRE sections? A 304 is very low. Columbia won’t care about your participation awards. Show more leadership. Sorry for the harsh reality.
