Hi all,

I am 25 years old, will be 26 when school starts should I get in. My "stats" are below:

- 3.25 cumulative GPA from The George Washington University, with a major in International Affairs, concentration: East Asia. I studied abroad in Tokyo and am fluent in Japanese.

- During university, interned at The Ritz Carlton

- Accepted into management training program with The Walt Disney Company. Spent 1 year as a Front Desk Manager at 2 hotel properties.
- Left Disney for re-opening of The Plaza in NYC. Took position as opening Front Desk Manager.
- Spent 8 months at The Plaza...decided I was more interested in the development/real-estate side of hotels and left for REDAC, Inc, a Japanese real estate company.
- Promoted after 1 year at REDAC, after proposing a new division be created. Now work as an Asset Manager, as head of that division, managing buildings functioning as extended stay hotels for Japanese corporate clients. Advise on hotel operations and oversee all building aspects, including renovations.

- Paper Practice tests (Kaplan, Manhattan, McGraw Hill, etc): 650-720
- Practice CAT Exam (Manhattan GMAT): 42Q, 38V: 680

Target Schools:

USC
UCLA
Stanford
Georgetown
Emory
Vanderbilt

My goal is to embark on a career in hotel development.

So, do I have a shot?

I think stanford is going to be tough, it is for everyone (even with stellar stats)
the other schools are in the right ball park with a 680+ gmat. With such a specific goal its going to be imperative that you show "fit" if a school didn't have a strong RSD focus you'd likely be hot water with the adcoms. Make sure your choices are strong in that (they may be great already)
Your hail mary could be Wharton, which is strong in RS.

Best of luck!
