I plan to apply for Fall 2012. Preparing GMAT and targeting a score of around 700.

Spanish, 33 years old, male
8 years experience, 6 years marketing + 2 years business development
B.A in media
MS in Marketing Management

I have one big issue. My academics are not very strong. But, on the other side, I have developed a strong professional experience in marketing working for a government company. Also could get strong recommendations

Despite that I have a Masters in Marketing, I want to study an MBA to develop my management skills and business training
Because of my training and experience in marketing, my first choice is Kellog, but also will apply to Wharton, Duke and Berkeley.

Thanks in advance

I absolutely agree that at this point in your career it is your LORs and professional experience that will weigh most heavily with an Adcom. You shouldn't need to worry too much about your undergraduate academic performance (especially if you score around 700). But, it is much more difficult as a 33 year old to explain why a full-time MBA program is the right choice for you. Many people with your level of experience opt for an executive MBA (or just take a few management classes to round out their skill set at a local or part-time program). For you, this is further complicated by the fact that you already have one master's degree. An Adcom may worry why you need a second (why you didn't originally go to business school?). If you can successfully mitigate these concerns then your age and your early academic performance shouldn't hold you back!
