Expert's post
I actually really like your profile for several reasons, first and foremost, you are unique as an Architect. This is not a common background for b-school and therefore will pique the interest of the admissions committees. The fact you are also a team player who leads others will also be unique within your profession, since they will not expect an architect to have this kind of experience. Again, this will make you jump off the page if written well. you have a good GMAT score, which should quell any concerns they might have about your making a jump to a quant heavy curriculum (architecture is not known for intense quant). I think your target schools will be impressed with your involvement as well. Finally, I like that your post MBA goal is a natural continuation of your background in architecture. Schools will want to identify marketable skills and a post MBA vision which makes sense and will attract recruiters. Make sure your target schools provide access to the real estate firms you desire to work for or can get you connected at least. Let us know if we can help you prepare your applications.
