I'm thinking about applying to business school after completing my postgraduate degree in international political economy.

I'm an all-around competitive candidate (3.8 GPA, GMAT 700, four years of work experience, volunteering work, travel, multilingual, etc). I'm just concerned of age. I'm currently 27 and will be turning 28 during my application.

You think age will be a factor?

By the time I graduate, I will still be earning more than 90% of people in my demographic. So, I'm strongly leaning towards applying. What does /biz/ think?

Yes, you can totally do you MBA. Most b-schools would require around 5 years of work/post-graduate experience anyway, and I know MBA's in their mid-30s, so you're still on the youngish side.

Many companies allow their employees to get their MBA while still working / having guaranteed employment. If you feel as if you are close to peaking in terms of salary, go for it.

You should be fine. Average graduate student is around 33~, so you're well below that. From the looks of things you're an excellent candidate (good GPA, actual experience, multilingual and okay with traveling) so just pick out a good school that's not a joke.

Thanks Anons. Just wanted to make sure about the age thing. Other online forums have too wide ranging opinions.
