I had applied for 5 universities for Fall 2011 & all were rejected. Part of it could be that I applied too late (May - June timeframe) or it could probably have to do with my profile.
I would like to pursue a 1 year or 18 months MBA (not EMBA). So would like to know your valuable suggestions/inputs on, - Is my age an issue for getting admissions into the schools? - which US schools do you think I have a realistic chance of gaining admission, asssuming I score 700+ in GMAT
You're going to have a tough time getting into any top b-school because of your level of experience -- at your stage in career, a lot of b-schools will be encouraging you to apply to their executive programs, not full-time programs.
In any case, focus on the GMAT first. The score you're aiming for is a huge jump from you last score, so it's not a trivial thing to assume -- your entire attention should be on GMAT prep at this point. _________________
I understand that the GMAT score I am aiming for is more but I just studied for 3 weeks with my 1st attempt. So I know the preparation was not anywhere close to where it has to be. I will plan to invest more time so I get a good score this time around.
Not happy to know that B schools do not favor me for Full time.
