Is 33 too old for a top US MBA? [#permalink] New post 06 Aug 2009, 09:59
Hi!

I am 33 now and I will be applying to the top US B Schools (Fall 2010)
Is there any particular school which discourages older students to apply?

Thanks in advance!

They all do pretty much. Some schools skew younger and some skew older, but at 33 you'll be outside the middle 80% at virtually all top b-schools (i.e. less than 10% at virtually all the top schools are younger than 31 at matriculation).

However, age alone won't be the determining factor. If you're a non-traditional applicant (military, nonprofit, arts/sports, etc.) then it won't be an issue. If you're in engineering, finance, accounting, corporate, etc. then it will be a handicap.
