Age - 30 today
Gender - Female
Nationality - Indian

With a GMAT score of 720 what schools should I aim for?

Exp - 8 years as an engineer in the silicon valley in mid-size companies like AMD etc
Have experience handling customer accounts although I haven't managed people

Post-MBA Goals - Business Development & Strategy in tech, Finance

Undergrad - Electrical Engineering from Cornell. GPA - 2.9 downward trend. Took 5 years to graduate
Grad - Electrical Engineering from a local school. GPA - 3.7. Took 5 years to graduate as I took classes on and off while working full-time. Is 5 years for a part-time Masters a deal-breaker to get into a good school?
I'm not sure if my academic history can be offset by my GMAT etc

Schools of interest - INSEAD, HEC-Paris, LSB, Duke, Ross

Thanks a lot for the help.

IMHO you will be competitive at your target list for several reasons: 1) you are female 2) you have 8 years of solid WE which will offset your lower GPA and longer academic trek 3) you have proven yourself in grad school already 4) you have a killer GMAT score 5) you have international WE and have worked in the US, allowing you to be a cultural bridge at b-school between students who have never spent time in the states and US based students. With a well crafted application and a visionary view of your future and why you want the MBA, you should be able to get into at least one or more of your target schools.

Thanks a lot for your response. Is my age a disadvantage? I am 30 today which means at matriculation I would be 31.
