There's not a whole lot of real estate companies who recruit MBAs, so you might be better off trying to go get a job at Jones,Lang LaSalle or CB Richard Ellis as an analyst and in two years time, you'd be in a good spot and not be out $150,000. Having said that, your high GMAT certainly puts you in good position to get attention academically (especially when coupled with your GPA from a good school), but keep in mind the average number of years work experience is 5 years or more at your target schools, so unless they are looking for a GMAT boost to their average, you may have trouble convincing them that now is the right time for you vs. waiting a couple of years after you have 1) logged more time in the field and 2) ventured into your target area to demonstrate commitment to your vision.
