Hello and welcome to GMAT Club!

If you are applying at 33/34 and then matriculating at 35, it is very hard to get into a top Full Time program in the US. Europe is more possible and feasable but I would not pursue a US program and instead focus on either programs that do offer options for older applicants. There are a few 1-year programs such as Stanford Sloan program, and many others, and of course the EMBA programs. Of course, you will need to improve your GMAT for the top mba program application. However, the biggest aspect you will need to address is WHY MBA in your application and your journey since all of these programs do not really contemplate or assume switching jobs, industries, etc and more of an enhancement of your career.

P.S. If you are dying to get an MBA, i feel it would be right for you to research schools.
