This question already has an answer here:

Is it possible to be accepted as a PhD student in mathematics and provided full scholarship at the age of 35? What about top-ranked US universities? Mathematics has the reputation of a field for young minds. Do the admission committee consider the age of an applicant? I mean, can the committee reject the application solely because of the age, when everything else is fine?

  • can the committee reject the application solely because of the age I don't think so. Age discrimination is illegal in the US. – scaaahu Dec 26 '14 at 8:15
  • @scaaahu: I think, they can find a reason to decline. They might explain it somehow. – Graduate Dec 26 '14 at 8:17

    I voted to close as a dup because TCS is not that different from Math. – scaaahu Dec 26 '14 at 9:17
