Nink, I just started prepping for GMAT and have a weak math base. My question is will applying closer towards the deadlines hurt my chances that much?

That depends on the school that you are applying to. A lot of MS Accounting programs have rolling admissions system even with a set deadline. (I think this is especially true for public universities or programs with small class size and lots of applicants) Therefore, sometimes if you apply too close to the deadline, it can be a disadvantage.

If a school does not operate on rolling admissions system (rolling admissions = the application gets reviewed and the decision is made on first come first serve basis, rather than waiting on all the applications for the incoming class and reviewing it all after the deadline), then applying close to the deadline won't have that much effect on your chances of admissions.

Any pointers on how to write my essay for Texas?

I don't really know what say other than I want to become a CPA, work for a Big4, and then depending upon whether I think I can continue moving up the ladder I'll either stay or start my own business or look for a job an industry job?

I don't know if I should be throwing things in there like my passion for accounting, because to me it just sounds cheesy.

Basically, how do I make my essay help me stand out.

GPA 3.07, but last 2 semesters were 3.5
I'm aiming for a 710 and hoping to come up with an amazingly passionate and inspiring essay

For any MS Accounting essay, all you need to really communicate is that you are interested in public accounting, and working as public accountant as CPA is the goal after the degree. You can also throw in some interesting developments such as: US adopting IFRS and as a result there's going to be a demand for well informed CPA's for this transition etc.

Also you are going to need to communicate that your GPA isn't true reflection of your academic ability etc. Your GPA is kinda low for U Texas-Austin avg. You are gonna need high GMAT score, if possible.
