Advice:
Based on my personal experience, as someone who did not have a background in this field, your peers and professors are very important. The environment in the real estate Master’s program is one where your peers and professors are eager to help because everyone wants to see others succeed. Additionally, the professors are extremely knowledgable and have a lot of resources that you can utilize to further your career in whatever direction you want to take. Additionally, this program heavily emphasizes preparing you for what you will be doing in your career and that is evident in the way the professors structure their curriculum. Therefore, it is really important to lean on those around you and take the opportunities that are offered.
