Am I considered too old for a FT MBA? [#permalink] New post 03 Aug 2011, 11:07
Age - 31 at the time of application and at the time of registration/matriculation
I will be 32 around 2 months after I join the full-time program. I plan on graduating in 1.5 years vs 2 years.

GMAT - 740
GPA - Low. A 2.8 downward trend from a top 15 engineering program.
Exp - 8 years in engineering
Post MBA-plans - Management consulting

Target schools - Kelley, Emory, Kenan-Flager, Oxford, INSEAD
Do I come under the "older applicant" category. Are there other European schools that are good for management consulting at my age?

Thanks for the help.

You are on the older side but not to the point where it's going to be a huge handicap for the kinds of schools you're after.

For Euro schools aside from INSEAD and Oxford, look at IMD, LBS, Cambridge and the Spanish schools (IE, ESADE, IESE). The Euro schools tend to skew a little older anyhow (i.e. most people in their late 20s / early 30s as opposed to most people in their mid-to-late 20s in the US schools).
