6. Target Progarms
HBS, Sloan, Wharton, Booth, Kellogg, Stern, Tuck, Yale, Georgetown, Maryland, INSEAD

Your grades are a little low for HBS and Stanford. A 720 would be competitive. Your work experience shows progress and you have leadership. You have a shot at all the programs, but HBS, Wharton, Sloan, Booth and Kellogg would be stretch programs mostly because of the intense competition for them. You have a competitive profile for the other schools on your list. You may want to consider USC and UCLA also. Both are strong in real estate and have strong ties to the Pacific Rim.
