I was just wondering if anyone could give me some school application recommendations-here is my profile:

Undergrad: top 20-25 USNW University, 3.8+GPA,

History Major+Business minor (have taken calculus i,ii, statistics, financial acctg, corporate financial mgmt)

GMAT: averaging around 700 on practice tests

Career Experience: I am intending to get started in commercial real estate at a brokerage like CBRE or Cushman. I will be a senior this year and really like real estate. The purpose in getting an MBA would be to transition to buy side real estate after 3-5 years.

The reason that I have made this post is because I can't get a sense of how my career experience will affect my application. I recognize that working in RE capital markets is not exactly the "sexy" background (i.e. consulting, IBanking, Private Equity, etc.) Wharton or Tuck might be looking for. As such, I was just wondering what some good alternatives would be, and would appreciate any recommendations.

Your plan seems like a good solid one. Re finance is a good solid industry, and if you have three years experience, then you would be good to apply.

Remember that GMAT score is only 1 of multiple factors when they consider your candidacy. Review the school's priorities first!
