I've written a couple of posts on WSO concerning the MBA and GMAT process. I couldn't find a direct post relating to this topic, so I thought I might ask. I was wondering on the age ranges/number of years of work experience of MBA applicants who trying to go into investment banking at a top 1-25 range school? I am currently 26 and working on my GMAT till I get a good score 700+. It may take me a long time till I get the score and repeated attempts, but I'm worried I might get too old when I apply for b-school. Would I be too old to apply to an MBA in order to pursue a career in investment banking (I would possibly have 7-8 years of work experience and apply at the age of 29-31)? The reason why I ask is because when I view mba class profiles the avg work experience is 4-5 years (age estimate 26-27), and I'm under the impression investment banks dont like to bring in Mba grads who are over 30.
Thanks in advance.
