Georgetown MPS in real estate - 2014 updateI've searched WSO and found a few threads on this program, but most of the threads are pretty dated at this point. I'm starting the program this month.

My grievances against the present administrationDuring the GOP primary the debates between supporters have become pretty heated. But I think some voters get lost in the weeds of their political philosophies. For me it is absolutely essential to throw out Barack Obama, if for no other reason than to repeal Obamacare. A lot of "conservatives"... 3 years 4 months
