1) Work Exp: 1.5 years at an IT Audit / Internal Audit Company, 1 year as a Corporate Accountant at large public Silicon Valley gaming company, just started an investment banking analyst position at a mid-market boutique investment banking firm.
2) Gmat: Have not taken it yet, but assuming I will get somewhere in the range of 700-730
3) College info: UC Berkeley, 3.0 GPA, Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, I had a lower GPA because I studied EECS and had a major injury that prevented me from going to class for the first 2 semesters, ended up having to switch majors and forced myself to take 5,5,5, and 6 engineering classes my last 4 semesters at CAL. I also received an A.A. degree in Accounting after my undergrad and graduated with a 3.9 (not sure if this will help or if it's even relevant).
4) Post college EC: I was heavily involved with a micro-finance organization called Wokai as well as a pro bono consulting non-profit called The Taproot Foundation.
5) Certifications: CPA, Certified Info Sys Auditor (CISA) and Real Estate Brokers License
6) Penn, Columbia, NYU, Booth, MIT, UCLA
7) Corporate Development in a large Gaming firm or Tech focused VC / PE shop

Apologies for the brevity of my responses. Typed this up pretty quickly. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Yes, i believe the AA 3.9 GPA alleviates the 3.0 at Berkeley. The biggest challenge I see to your application is to explain why now is the right time to pursue the MBA when you just started a new finance position. You may need to stay in that position for another year to prove that you've gained something from it and will build on that experience post-graduation.
