Best UG Schools for REPE/REIB?

I asked a similar question before, but would like to hear any new responses. Would be interested in hearing anyone's Top 5/10 as well as any Pros and Cons associated. Thanks for the input!

I don't think you'll get drastically different responses from last time. Would again echo Cornell & Wharton. Maybe Columbia.

Cornell or Wharton. If Cornell focus on the real estate/hotel major or Econ and you'll be able to find something in RE. Wharton you could take courses and specialize in real estate which would lead to great opps too.

You can go to a lot of schools and find a great program. Notably, Wisconsin and USC have real estate focused programs. Cannot go wrong with Wharton. overall most important thing is network and you can't go wrong with any ivy, Michigan, NYU, UVA, Berkeley etc as they all have top tier RE alumni
