I'm a 34 year old commercial real estate appraiser for CBRE, the largest real estate services firm in the world.

I value properties for banks, life insurance companies, developers, attorneys and others
I've got a 680 on my gmat
I went to East Carolina University, graduated in 2004 w/ a 2.75 GPA. I worked full time to pay my own way through college. While I was in school, I got my real estate sales license, brokers license, and appraisal trainee license. I managed a few properties for other people and I bought 5 rental properties around the school I was going to. My goal was to build a real estate empire. I took 18 credits every semester and also took other career courses outside of school. I had to support myself and build my career while going to school at the same time.
I've got my MAI and CCIM designations and a vice president title at the office. I also currently make about $150K a year. Does this help?
I'm interested in going to the U of Southern Cal Masters of Real Estate Development program
I am applying for the 2014 school year
My goal is to start my own real estate investment company and take it public (form a REIT)
Can I get in? My undergrad GMAT is terrible. Getting great grades was not my top priority 10 years ago.

Any info you can share is greatly appreciated!

I'm not optimistic about your chances at USC's program, but I would still encourage you to apply and try. You have reasons why the GPA was low as well as evidence you can actulaly do the work. You may also want to consider UNC or U of Wisconsin. If there is an executive program or an part-time version of this program, your chances are better.

Best,
Linda Abraham
