Is age a concern? - Please review profile [#permalink] New post 03 Apr 2012, 17:44
This is a great forum with excellent people. I have been planning for an MBA for a while but wasn't able to work on in till now. Here are some details:

Age:
Will be 30 when applying for 2013 admissions

Education:
Undergrad in a Computer-related Engineering field (outside North America and Europe), GPA 4/4
Master's Degree in a Computer-related engineering field from a top Canadian university, GPA 4/4

Work Experience:
~3 years engineering in a leading semiconductor company (doing software)
~4 years (by round 1) in a small and fast growing american software company
started in tech position but currently hold a management position in one of departments at the company

GMAT: 760+

Extra-curricular: very good.. both in university but mainly in an NGO.

Planning for R1/R2 for 2013 admissions..

I understand my profile is not weak, but should I be concerned about age? I do have some top schools in mind, but I have been reading that age may be an issue. Any feedback is welcome.

Hi misterclub,

You have a strong candidacy. Do not be overly concerned about your age. Here is a case study of a 37 year old who was accepted into Harvard Business School: http://www.stacyblackman.com/2011/05/12 ... applicant/

If you are interested, we provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
