I'm interested in real estate finance. I'm specifically interested in Wharton's real estate program, but of course would love to get into any top program. However I'm worried about the fact that I've worked for 3 companies (although I feel i have great experiences from all of them).
Have not taken the GMAT,..3.1 GPA, black male. Not sure what my chances are or how much my experience will ding me.
I don't think you have anything to worry about as long as you can tell a good story and relate your work experience to your desire to get into real estate finance. Even if you got fired, you can always tell a good story. Since you can't do anything about your work experience or your undergrad GPA, just focus on your GMAT and applications. If you're really worried about your GPA, you could build an alternate transcript by taking tough business-related courses (and hopefully getting straight A's) to show AdComs you're super smart. Extracurricular activities are pretty important too, otherwise b-schools would be flooded with boring geeks
Life with the GMAT:
Jerome: Ben, c'est 20 secondes de plus qu'hier sur le meme parcours! C'etait bien le meme parcours la, non?!
Gigi: Mais t'enerve pas, Jerome, je crois que t'as accroche une porte.
