Sounds like top 20 will be reach based on what you shared although a lot will depend on the specifics of your work experience (impact you've had, results you've driven), your goals, how prestigious your undergrad institution was, and that GMAT score. You want to at least hit a school's average school and ideally you want to exceed it.

You are on the upper end in terms of age, which can raise concerns that you no longer need the degree, so you'll definitely want to work on a strong "why MBA" argument (the skill gaps you need to fill) & that rests on your goals.

If you'd like to speak in more detail about your candidacy & how we can help definitely reach out to us. Getting a bit more detail about you would definitely help us give you a better sense of your chances at various schools. If you email Claudia at she will set up up with a free consultation!
