Thanks for the details in your post. I wondered in reading it if you have considered any of the early admission programs such as Yale Silver Scholars or Harvard 2+2? These are quite advantageous for high achieving students who have not yet graduated from their undergraduate programs. In HBS case, they essentially offer you full, regular admission as a senior in college, but you go and work somewhere for two years first (it's like "pre-admission). Your stats look pretty good for this program and you would want to emphasize leadership in college and your community. For Yale, it's similar, but you actually go ahead and start their MBA program after you graduate and then take 3 years to get it including two internships. I would highly encourage you to look at these programs if your goal is to do the MBA after only 2 or three years of WE, since this would be more challenging the traditional way with most schools including HBS approaching 5 years of average work experience for regular admits. Let us know if we can help you pull your application together or if you have more questions.

Three years of big 4 audit experience is good MBA prep but it's really more about how you present your experience to the adcom and how you tie it into your post MBA vision. The problem with big 4 experience, is that it risks sounding like any of the other hundreds of applicants who come from big 4 firms, so think about telling stories vs. just describing what you do. Also make sure you articulate why you like your job and why you want to pursue your post MBA vision. Most people fail to talk about why.
