Am I CRAZY or does THIS make sense? MASTERS IN REAL ESTATE!??
I am a first-gen hispanic male at the end of my Junior Year at a top Cal State studying finance, real estate, and law with plans of graduating in spring 2023. I have a 3.45 major gpa with previous work experience as a shift manager, as well as internship experience at a boutique commercial real estate brokerage.I have very few connections. I want to end up in a top REPE firm and start as an anlyst but to do that I need to obtain a masters degree in real estate at a good school to get my foot in the door (because of my low gpa, I plan on working non stop to get a 750+ GMAT). Work a few years and later down the line, an MBA at a top school. Thats my master plan so far. Please feel free to poke holes in my theoretical plan and make it stronger if viewed as weak; constructive ciriticisim is greatly valued)
I would like to apply to the MSRE/MSRED programs offered at NYU, GEORGETOWN, CORNELL, COLUMBIA, AND WASHINGTON upon graduation.
What are my chances of getting in to these programs?
If low, how can I improve my chances?
If I have no shot, what other great alterantives should I apply to instead?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
