You are old compared to others. But that's ok, you do you and don't think about what others are doing. Good luck with your apps!

Age is less important than experience level. After a certain amount of experience, the value proposition of an MBA falls off rapidly. I've seen plenty of senior associates and VPs get an MBA and return to full time with a VP title..

It's never "too late". Just depends on what you want out of it. If you are already at associate level or above, you typically come back in at the same level if you stay in banking. So it's really about what you want to do / where you want to end up and what you think will be the most helpful for developing the skills you want / lack to get there.
