I m turning 29 and believe that I don’t have much time left to apply for MBA. I don’t want to start fresh at 33. So if I need to do it, 29 is really my final call. I regret so much I didn’t study for GMAT when I was 24-25 when I had much more then than I do now. Let’s say I do get admitted at 30. I will graduate at 32:( while the others will still at their late 20s ...


What do you guys think ?

No use beating yourself up, when you were 24/25 you wanted to do the things that the young people do I'm sure. Who's to say that wasn't better.

You should start working swiftly towards getting a good GMAT score and get a tutor form a study group put together a massive action plan for that.

Work on your profile ( to the extent you can within a matter of months) and apply in the fall. There might be a slightly lesser chance that you will get into Harvard or Stanford but only slightly and otherwise you're pretty much in the right Zone.

Starting at 30 is OK. In Europe and UK the average age for MBA students is 30.

So make tracks but put all of this to the side honestly it's only going to drag you down and it's a not a deal-breaker...so just move quickly you don't have time to waste.

I think that you should get individual and group help with the GMAT and I think you should get individual and group help with the application process. Meaning that you should be efficient with your time.

Hey gempony,

Hi again ;) I don't feel there is anything like the best age! (though statistics say that you most students do on mba between the age of 26-29 but that's just a stat and you should not think too much into this.

Many many people have done it post 30 and the MBA has been pretty fruitful for them.

& to be in your shoes, you know - since I am from India - here most of the students do an MBA (like get done with the MBA course) before 25....trust me I was in the exact same dilemma some months back when I used to think "Why the heck did I not study for this gmat thing 3 years back??" :roll: :? But all is well now - I have just stopped thinking and accepted the facts :angel:

There is no age for learning. It is amazing how many people in this world are afraid of trying new things after they cross 30. Age is just a number and we should let it at that.
