Hello appstar, thanks for your question.

In short, I think your experience in wealth management is an asset. Your age and GMAT (considering your competitive demographic) could be obstacles.

I know Wharton and Booth tend to be more tolerant of more experienced candidates, but that doesn’t mean you have no shot at other programs. There’s no formula.

I think you have a good range of programs in your target list. It’s fine to apply to schools ranked 5-10, but they represent a bigger reach than some of the others you’ve mentioned. I think it’s fine to take those shots, but definitely mitigate your risk and include programs like USC, Kelly, Tepper, and the like.

I hope this helps!

Best of luck,

Brian Eng
