Which Fall 2020 MSRE program should I pursue to build towards a REPE or REIB career?
WSO community,I am looking to build towards a REPE or REIB career with zero prior real estate experience. I have 1.5 years of solid work experience in non-real estate related industries.I am aware that MSRE graduates with zero to minimal real estate experience are not guaranteed nor likely to obtain an immediate REPE or REIB offer, hence why I stated I am "building" towards these careers.I have been applying to MSRE programs in NYC the past couple months to break into a NYC real estate career. I am aware that a significant percentage of the value I will be paying for is the institution's alumni base, industry network, and professors that can help me secure internships and my first real estate analyst role out of the gates. I have applied to:1) NYU (Established & often discussed on WSO)2) Baruch College3) Fordham University (MSRE program started in 2017)4) Pratt Institute (MS in Real Estate Practice - RE development focused program started in 2017)I missed the deadlines for Columbia's Fall 2020 MSRED and Cornell's Fall 2020 MSRE.Questions:1) From top to bottom with top being the highest priority, which programs would you prioritize starting with the goal of building towards a REPE or REIB career with zero work RE experience?2) What are the ideal internships one would need to secure in order to secure a REPE or REIB offer? My current priority of programs are below:1) NYU - $81.6K (42 credits, $2,577 / credit)2) Baruch College - $13.2K (34.5 credits, full-time semester 12+ credits is $5,545.00, $470 / part-time credits)3) Fordham University - $50K (36 credits / $1,385 credit)4) Pratt Institute - $66.5 (36 credits, $1,847 / credit)FYI: These programs are all ~1 year full-time time / energy investments. I appreciate all your insight. I will be taking a Ray Dalio approach to all your advice and opinions.Best,An individual aspiring towards a career in REPE or REIB.
