Too old for MSF? (26)
Hey everyone I'm new to the forum but have been lurking over the past few months. Long story short I graduated college at 25 with a degree in Math, and after talking with a few people for a while and thinking about my career I've decided to try and break into finance.
I decided on an MSF after lurking/receiving advice (and not getting much of a response from job applications) and I've been studying pretty intensely for the GMAT. I've noticed that a lot of the top MSF programs have low age averages, with Vandy at 22 and USC/UT at 23. The exception is Georgetown with an average age of 30, and while Georgetown also is the most attractive to me for other reasons, I was planning on sending out multiple applications and was wondering if being 26/27 counts as a strike against you at places like Vandy/USC/UT. What do you guys think?
