I will be taking the GMAT exam in 2 weeks and applying to the Columbia MSRED program for the upcoming Summer 2018 semester. I graduated from a mid tier undergrad program with a 3.43 GPA, after which I started an Ops position at a top 10 asset management firm (in terms of AUM), where I have been for 1 year 9 months at this point. I don't have any formal experience in the RE industry.
My question is, what does it take to be accepted into the Columbia MSRED program? What have students scored on the GMAT, and what score should I be aiming for? What type of recommenders do they value, etc.
Thank you in advance!
