Is there any age factor for Bschools

Hi Guyz, Hope you all must be preparing hard to get a good GMAT score.
I have a small concern, Does age factor plays any role in getting admissions in B schools and post study prospects. I am 31 but have rich experience and educational degrees. Need advice. Thanks in advance.

Hi rishi2003,

While it is possible that an applicant might be too young or too old for a particular program (in an 'extreme' situation), the short answer to your question is NO. Your age (31) will almost certainly NOT keep you out of any Business School. Of course, you're asking a general question - you can get a much more pointed answer if you name the Schools/Programs that you're interested in. You can also discuss this with an Admissions Expert if you're interested. There's a Forum full of them here: ... t-f40.html
