Harvard MBA admission

Post Mon Sep 19, 2011 7:26 pm
Hi,

I am currently working on my 2nd attempt at the GMAT after getting a very low score (540 on my 1st attempt. I've reached low to mid 600's in the practice tests and with some more study and practice I should be able to get into the 700 range. My question is as follows: Is it true that Harvard doesn't take applicants who are over 26 or 27 years of age?

My background:

Indian, with a 3.9 GPA in M.S in Electrical Engineering from University of Missouri - Kansas City. Work exp. of about 4 years at Ericsson US.

Please advise.

Thanks.

BR// Altamash.

No. But they DO have a love for younger students. So we do take that into consideration when applying.
