As the title states. By "older" I mean late 20's early 30's. I'm currently 28 and I'm starting to look into pursuing the MBA. I did an undergrad in business (strong gpa) and currently have 6 years of work experience (4 years big 4 audit, 2 years big 4 corporate finance advisory). Aiming for 2013 to enter a program. My hope is that my experience + a top tier MBA would allow me to move into IB. At the very least, it would accelerate my career at my current employer. From what I've read, it seems like the top end schools are trending towards younger applicants. Will my age ding me? Are there any schools which I'd have a better chance at (all things such as GMAT being equal)? Looking forward to thoughts.
