Thanks for posting.

From my perspective, you do not have any weaknesses except that you may not be aiming high enough. Given your background and with a strong application, I would encourage you to apply to such schools as Wharton, Sloan and Columbia. From an admissions perspective, you have proven yourself more than capable in many different arenas, including academic and professional. If you market yourself correctly, I am certain that almost all admissions offices will find your candidacy compelling.

Good luck.

Thank you Kimberly for your information. I simply heard that Big 4 pool is quite competitive and especially competitive for Chinese Male unfortunately. Anyway, your comments have given me much confidence to apply those schools, thanks again.
