Open to suggestions on targets. Feel like Darden, McCombs, Anderson, and Fuqua are in the ballpark. Kellogg and Wharton are my reaches.

Undergrad: BS Econ, respected private school, nothing special though

W/E: ~10 years at matriculation, US military pilot with multiple combat deployments, significant combat flight time. Managed logistics and long term operations of squadron, planned and executed multiple large scale exercises and movements both stateside and in deployed environments. Instructor pilot, flight leadership designations, and safety officer responsible for managing operational risk across organization.

E/C: Tutoring / mentoring of individuals with intellectual disabilities throughout HS and in to college. Spent 14 months in early 20s doing full time volunteer work outside of my community. Military life limited opportunities to serve until recently. Now volunteering with military centric non profit.

Goals: Consulting or LDP/Corp Fin. Have seen the world through a logistics lens based on work experiences and would like to explore that post MBA. Supply chain / logistics focus. Not crazy about the consulting lifestyle but not ruling it out either.

Outside of work, love to golf and generally be outdoors.
