Hi missxmelon,

Thanks for posting. Regarding your first question, I recommend you pursue the position if this is what you are most interested in. You should not decline the position solely for MBA admissions purposes.

More than your age, admissions teams will be focusing on work experience. There are MBA programs (Ex: Harvard Business School), which tend to look more at younger candidates, so the answer depends on which schools you are considering.

Regarding your application, you do have a very strong candidacy. If you'd like, we provide free school overviews here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-school-hub/

We also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team

the planet.

I will keep away from writing usual awards which are on team level like 'Thank You' , I Appreciate,etc.

I would appreciate if I can have a profile evaluation done for my candidature for above mentioned schools, also I would welcome your
expert opinion on consideration of any other better schools (If I can !! depending upon above profile) !!

Thanks in advance,
