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.

Your age can be an issue if you are aiming at programs with a low average age at matriculation, like Stanford. It is not an issue for programs with average at matriculation of 28 or more. Please see MBA admissions for older applicants.

Best,
Linda
