Enlisted Navy nuclear field - finishing Computer Engineering bachelors next spring from mid-tier public university. Was concerned about technically no postgraduate work experience, applying without a finished undergraduate degree, and being enlisted vs. officer but after maintaining my stats I'd like to shoot for the moon.

I have five classes remaining in my degree, I'm taking two this summer, two in the fall and my capstone will be my last class next spring.

End goal is strategy in tech, so hoping to achieve that via either MBB->Tech Strategy or Tech PM/PMM -> Tech Strategy.

Tier list is HBS/Sloan/Yale -> Darden/GSB/Berkeley/Cornell -> Duke/UNC. Geographic location places a big part in my choices, but I would obviously be willing to move to the west coast for an M7 or Berkeley.
