You have all the key elements in place for a good run at these schools including a great GMAT score (albeit expected, frankly for the Asian applicant pool), decent academics, progressively responsible career and EC involvement. I like that you have some senior level experience and CPA designation. Would it be possible to resurrect your volunteer experience? That way, it won't be just something you did in college, but rather something you have done "throughout your life." This will demonstrate passion and will be more meaningful. Having your career plan laid out is important, so good to see you have your goals decided. Weaving it all together is the key. Try to differentiate yourself in the way you reveal your strengths so you don't end up sounding like the "next person" in line with a CPA and good GMAT score. Let us know if we can help more specifically.
