Masters in Real Estate / Real Estate Development w/ a bad GPA?
For someone looking for a career in real estate, would you recommend a MRED or is it better to go for an MBA?
Has anyone had any experience with an MRED program and would you recommend a specific program?
I have 2.5 years of solid hands on internship experience in commercial real estate, I own an investment property, and I am currently working in commercial lending ( I was offered a job as a commercial RE broker, but I turned it down for this banking gig until I could find a better RE opportunity in line with what I want to do). I have very good recommendations from the principles at all three real estate firms I worked with throughout college.
The problem is my GMAT was only a 640 and I had a pretty shitty GPA of 2.8 from a university ranked in the 50s range. As I have only been with my current bank for 6 months now, I tend to stay another 6 months before applying anywhere. I will retake the GMAT before then.
With a sucky GPA from a mediocre school, what would you guys recommend?
