I recently decided to obtain my MBA and having a difficult time determine where I might fit in... Here is my profile.

Age: 30
Gender: Male
GMAT: Taking in October

Undergrad: Bachelor of Science from University of Utah in Political Science
GPA: 3.1
Will finish my degree December 2011

School would broken up by my 2 year faith based mission and also my entrepreneurial experience.

Work experience:
- 5 years in Real Estate Development projects where I was either the principle or a partner. Still consult for one rather large one. (2005-2010)
- 1 year at Wells Fargo as a Banker, promoted 3 times (typical minimum promotion time is 1 year in each position), obtained my securities licensing (2010-2011)

One of the reasons for seeking out my MBA is the positions at Wells Fargo that interested me had the MBA requirement next to them. I had hit a wall at Wells Fargo in just a year, so I left my job to finish my unfinished undergrad degree and now I'm prepping for the GMAT so I can get into a good MBA program. I tried my hand at the entrepreneur and while that did not work out I have had more experiences than I could have possibly learned in school. But seeing as I don't anticipate the Real Estate market recovering I'm making a career move.

I also had to over come a learning disability while in school is this something I should talk about?

Extra-curricular - Served a 2 year faith based mission from ages 19-21

I went to Wells Fargo because unfortunately financing is next to impossible to get for development projects these days. This is one of the reason I want to go into finance, I was to work for or build a company which specializes in financing Green Sustainable Real Estate Developments. The projects I was working on are very green (still consult for the most recent one but there was no money to pay me) and while there is demand for those kind of developments there is currently no money to do so. I find mostly because people who work in finance typically are lumping the whole RE market together as a whole and are just as a rule no longer looking at projects. I would love to build a company to match government subsidies with private money to build these green residential and commercial structures. Are there any schools in particular that you would recommend for this?

Schools I'm looking at: BYU (Marriott), Texas A&M (May), Texas (McCombs), and I would like to take a shot at the top 10 programs as well (Stern, Kellogg, Wharton, Sloan, Haas and Anderson would be my main interests). I believe my work experience will play well and I have a lot in terms of insight I can offer

Would like to focus on finance particularly on sustainable finance so if you have any additional suggestions of schools that would fit that mold I would greatly appreciate the advise!
