what would you like to do post-MBA? what are your goals?

Realize that your age is going to be a bit higher than the average. As far as I know European b-schools are more forgiving when it comes to age, as we can the avg age being in the 30's for European schools. I think you should think about where you want to work post-MBA to decide whether to apply to some of these schools. It would only make intrinsic sense for you to apply to US schools if you'd like to work in the US afterwards, or vice versa for the European schools.

I definitely prefer to work in the US post MBA. But since my age is a concern for US school, I am considering EU schools.
