I'll admit, if two people come in and I can't tell their skills, enthusiasm, and abilities apart, I'm biased towards the younger one. You should have something to show for the extra experience beyond just years on a resume.

Of course, one way to compete without dropping admission standards -- and so improve your standing relative to universities that do drop their standards -- is to build out more student facilities. Fancier dorms, more gym space, more special programs, etc. Just like lowering admission standards, that's an arms race as well with the advantage going not to those who spend, but to those who spend more than their (otherwise) peers. It seems like we've been seeing that type of feedback roughly since the baby boomers past college age.
