Real Estate Masters Programs Recommendation (Georgetown vs NYU vs UC Berkeley)

I have been accepted to Georgetown, NYU, and UC Berkeley's real estate masters program. I was wondering if someone can tell me those schools' pros and cons. I have total one year experience in architecture firm as a project coordinator and I would like to pursue my career in real estate development after finishing the degree from above. Money is not an issue so please disregard everything but recruitment, curriculum, part-time opportunity, and prestige.

I would really appreciate it if someone in the forum who have gone to one of those programs and advice me to make a wise decision.

Thank you in advance.

go to the school in the geographic location that you want to work. this doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me (why you applied to these 3). DC? Georgetown. NYC? NYU. California? Berkeley.

I'd say the network and program at NYU is probably the most well regarded out of those three, though I am not too familiar with Berkeley's program.

Thank you for your response.
First off, I do not have any geographic location preference, so I will have to make a decision based on the other factors. I am still waiting for Columbia's program but I have to make a deposit by next week so I have to decide before I will get the results from Columbia.
Based on your response, I guess NYU would be a wise choice.

You should start developing a location preference very quickly then.

I will probably return to the UK, so what about the international (location) wise?

id be suprised if anyone in the UK gave much weight to an MSRE from any of those schools, except maybe NYU. if you want to work in the UK, go to LSE or Oxford or Imperial, or wait a bit and do an MBA program in the US.

Do you mind if I ask you why NYU?

Jan 13, 2019

Yeah. As sak0103 said, I would really appreciate it if you can tell me why NYU. I heard some bad things about LSE's program so I probably won't apply, but I am thinking about applying to Cambridge's program tho.
