Hello spkumar,

Thanks for writing in.

With your current work experience, you will definitely be an outlier in any class you find yourself in. Having said that, getting an admit is not impossible, provided you put forth an application that elaborates on your rich experience, and, more importantly, talks about your need for an MBA (this late in your career). You will need to emphasize on the learning aspect, as well as, how you see the MBA add value to your overall professional trajectory.

The bigger problem, though, is your GMAT score. A 620 on the GMAT may not give you your best chance at any of your target schools and you should definitely look to retake the GMAT and improve your score.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Thank you very much for your valuable insights. However, I would like to correct that my latest GMAT score is 650. My first attempt score was 620.
Is it really late in my career?...Well I am just 35. As I started working the same year I graduated, my experience is on the higher side. Does that change anything from what u have said?...

Thanks in advance
