Realistic shot at a full ride to top 10?


kaleb283

I am an active duty military member, originally considering an online MBA program, however I may have an opportunity to take a break from my service to pursue an on campus option, but without pay. I would love to go to a top ten program, but can only afford to do so with a full or very large scholarship.
730 GMAT
3.99 undergrad GPA
3 years active duty military as a pilot

I believe my chances for admission are fairly good, even though I lack traditional business/management experience. Could anyone handicap my chances for a full or large scholarship to a top ten US MBA?

I haven't heard or known the top 10 MBA programs to offer a full ride. I have come across people who were given full ride in Top 25-40 schools. Those schools believed that the profile was good enough for a Top 10/20 schools.

Example, my friend from undergrad applied to many top 25 schools with 740 GMAT, no one interviewed him. He got a full ride at Penn State.

Good luck!

No, your profile would not be enough for entry, let alone a partial scholarship, at most top ten schools.
