I really appreciate your feedback.. thanks!
I am 27 year old male. I have 3 years of investment banking in Asia and 2 years of commercial real estate acquisitions experience in the US. I have a 700 GMAT and a 2.9 GPA from a top 5 school.
I have a valid reason for my low GPA score for the optional essay.
What do you believe are my chances for Wharton or Columbia?
I am particularly interested in applying for their real estate program.
You didn't give me alot of info to go on, but assuming you have some strong leadership stories (hopefully outside of work as well as in) then you may have a fair chance at Wharton or CBS. Given that you went to a "top 5" school the adcoms will cut you slack for the 2.9 GPA.
