This forum has provided a lot of valuable information for me, but I have noticed that there isn't much discussion around the 2013 MSRED application process. I've just submitted all of my applications and am looking forward to getting accepted, making a decision, and enrolling. I thought I'd start this thread as a central point for any new MSRED discussion, especially considering that so much of the information on the forum is now dated.
A little about me. I'm 27, work in finance in NYC, and am applying to Columbia, Cornell, and MIT. I'm also applying to a couple of business schools with real estate concentrations.
