Because of our soft spot for soldiers, we end up meeting a high number of military candidates in the process of applying to bschool every year, and we spend a lot of time looking through their background and seeing which schools they’re targeting through our pro bono Comprehensive Profile Review offering. We also use that process to suggest alternate schools for them to consider (we do this in everyone’s profile reviews, not just for the military types). Because of the volume that we deal with, we are able to spot some trends from time to time. We still don’t have enough data to use for reliable predictions on the MBA applicant marketplace and the schools certainly don’t share this type of information publicly, but we do believe we can make some pronouncements about this particular population set – one of which is, which schools the military candidate tends to gravitate towards. Or not.
This rest of this post is accessible to approved military candidates only.
