My deadline is Fall 2009, I am already very old for applying and cannot afford to delay any more.
My concerns is to be able to convince the adcoms that my old age will not be a hindrance in advacement of my career and delay in applying is not because of lack of focus.
Please look at my profile, and let me know which schools might be good for me.
Thanks for looking into the profile. My post-MBA goal is to join an investment banking working on Fixed Income investing I work directly with Fixed income desk on regularly basis on my current job and I am fascinated by the quant, risk analysis that goes on in fixed income investing. Obviously this is my short term 3-5 goal, long term goal is to be portfolio manager for a big firm or start my own firm.
Aside from your age and competitive demographic, your career history shows a lot of movement, which may be an additional concern for schools. If you can address that then, given your goals, you should be competitive at the following schools: Rochester, Toronto, Wisconsin, Cornell, CMU, UNC, Georgetown, Vanderbilt. You could also apply to schools like MIT and Chicago as longshots.
Hope this helps. _________________
