1. Is it advisable to full time, considering 80% of the class is going to be around 26 - 28 years of age.
1. This basically depends on what you
are looking for from an MBA program. Your fit for a full time MBA program does not depend on the average class age. Also, remember that 26-28 is the average. So most schools have students whose ages range from 23 - 35.
2. Would my age /years of experience cloud prospective recruiters.
I can't really comment on this, but as far as I know, no. some recruiters really do value pre-MBA work experience. However, others such as I-banks and M/C firms prefer younger graduates due to the long work hours and frequent travel. So, it really depends on what kind of recruiters you are looking at.
3. Is 1 year full time MBA better than part-time from same top tier schools?
Again, it depends on what you want to do after the MBA. If you are returning to your old company in a more senior position, the PT MBA makes more sense. If you are career changer, the summer internship between year 1 and 2 can really help you.
