First time poster, but been lurking around the site for a while.
Long story short, have a Finance degree (decent school, but no ivy league), a little restructuring work, and spent the past 3 years in law school focusing on corp law (M&A, contract drafting/revision, etc.) with solid experience in those areas. My goal 3 years ago was to enter corp law papering M&A/PE deals and then exit over to biz side, but Ive realized that I want to skip that and jump straight into investment world, pref RE.
While it may seem like a wasted degree (correct me if I'm wrong), I'm looking at tenant rep and have some info interviews set up at the biggest shops (CBRE/JLL/etc) with some high-up individuals at their office. One even said he is going to have me meet a couple others while there.
(1) They know I have no RE experience, so will much be expected of me quantitatively speaking?
(2) How should I prep for this? I'm quite good at the legal info interviews, but this is new territory for me
(3) Is showing I can BS with anyone really what I need to sell? (hoping for this)
(4) Alt: How interested would development firms be in me? Interested in this side too.
Sorry for the longwinded post, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
