I was wondering whether anyone had any idea if Cornell's real estate program was nearly exclusively for experienced professionals? I know Columbia and MIT programs are but I can't find any information online definitively specifying whether or not they would consider an undergrad.

Might get flamed for this, but going from undergrad straight into such an industry specific graduate has to be the worst decision anyone can make. I don't care how much you love real estate. You should work in the industry to really see how much you love it before going into 50k+ debt.

Thanks for the perspective, definitely extremely relevant.

I go to Cornell. They have a RE minor in the Hotel School. In fact I think the majority of kids in the hotel school go into RE in some capacity. Also, if you are interested in RE, I would not follow the above advice at all. If you do think you made a mistake after taking some RE courses or interning freshman year it is fairly easy to switch majors at Cornell. I can tell you that if a RE firm recruiting at Cornell is looking at an Econ major with little relevant experience versus a RE minor they will take the latter every time. In short if you are interested in Real Estate go after it and if you make a mistake you can always switch majors.

So I'm not currently an undergrad at Cornell but rather a senior at a state school that would be looking to apply into Cornell's Master's program
