Age: 27 (28 at matriculation).

GMAT: 680 (86%), 46q (76%), 37v (80%)

Education:

University of Maryland, B.S. in Architecture. 3.2 GPA
Georgia Institute of Technology, M. Architecture, 3.5 GPA


Experience:

I worked 6 months before heading back to grad school at a small architecture firm. In grad school I had summer internships with a large architecture firm (top 200 in size in US). I also worked part time between 12-20 hrs/week in graduate school. Following graduate school I worked for approx 2 years at the same firm I interned with for 2 yrs, before I was laid-off this past March. Since then I have been volunteering at S.O.M.E. one-two days/week.

Extra-Curriculars:

Volunteer, S.O.M.E. Place for Kids, a long-term transition housing programs for under privledged families.
Volunteer; Board of Directors, Landscape Director, Clarendon Dogs. Clarendon Dogs is a local dog-park in an urban area. There is a re-design and re-planning in progress. I work with the city and community to try to help solve each others concerns.
Captain, Maryland Club Baseball Team
Captain, GA Tech Club Baseball Team
Real Estate & Development Club, University of Maryland
American Institute of Architecture Students, University of Maryland


Awards:

Finalist, The John Portman Prize (Best multi-family design project)

While in architecture graduate school I learned what little power architects hold over a project, and how the skills we are taught in school rarely are used because we don't "under stand the rules of the game (development)." I want to get an MBA to learn the skills necessary to understand how real-estate (development) decisions are made. Ultimately, I would like to lead my own development firm to do more then the cookie-cutter crap that gets built in this country.

I'm looking at UNC and UT-Austin for my competitive schools, Vandy as my safety (I guess?), and Columbia and Wharton as my reach. Sound about right? Any advice/comments would be welcomed. Thanks.

This may not be your strongest time to apply, if you had a position it would greatly enhance your application as well as retaking your GMAT (since you have time on your hands). But other than that, I believe you're actually more competitive than you think. I would put UTAustin and UNC as safeties, and I think you can target schools like Ross, Johnson or in that range as your competitive zone.
