Quick profile:

Undergrad: 3.35 in Physics from a top public school

GMAT: 730

Work Experience: 6 years, mostly as a software engineer, last 3 years at a large tech company. Been managing some team members for 1 year

Why the wait: i am in the process of getting a promotion which will be very stressful in itself and i can’t both apply to business school and try and pursue this promotion simultaneously. Promotion would be to be the engineering manager of my 12 person team

Concern: i am currently 30 with 6 years of work experience. I would be 31 at matriculation if i applied this year and 32 if i waited a year. How much will waiting that extra year harm my app if any?

Applying to: Booth, Kellogg, MIT, Ross, NYU

Hi mbafortech123,

Congratulations on the promotion! Waiting one year will not be a deal breaker for your MBA applications. What matters to top b-schools is that you have a strong profile, that you have shown leadership, and that you can succeed in their program. Use this time diligently to build your profile, and be proactive about learning all you can about each of the universities. Finally, to get admission to top MBA programs, you must have a clear idea about the reason you require an MBA. Work on clearly articulating that reason.

Happy to continue the conversation with a free 30-minute profile evaluation. If interested, click here to coordinate.

Congratulations again, and good luck on this next chapter!
