700 GMAT would be low for Wharton finance. I don't know how much leeway adcoms give for real estate instead, but you might want to consider retaking that. Only 10% have a GMAT of 700 or less at Wharton.

Thanks for the post. While I want to know more information first, you should retake the GMAT regardless. You come from a competitive set, despite your demographics. A trader with a 3.89 should not have a 700 with a Wharton target. Contact me if you want to discuss GMAT approaches.

In terms of EC leadership, what do you do locally? You mention volunteer experience, but I would like to know more. Feel free to email me to discuss further, but you should retake the GMAT. In addition, I want to know how much of a transition the real estate move is. You ideally want to have started to pave the way for this move. This can be done in a number of ways.

Best,
Scott

Thanks for sharing.

Increasing your GMAT score would help your chances.

Also, you need to show how your post-MBA goal of moving to real estate fits with your current background and the MBA program. Clearly demonstrate the skills and experiences you can leverage and the specifics of the program that would help you achieve your goal.

All the best!
