I am currently looking to apply for B-schools for the Fall 2010 semester.

Due to partying a lot, I ended up with undergrad GPA of 2.67, however due to good performance in my majors ( i was a dual major), I graduated with Honors in both of my majors ( Accounting and economics).

Currently I am a Graduate student doing MS in Enterprise Risk Management from Queens College, NY ( part of city university of NY). My expected gpa at the end of this program is 3.8-3.9. I have passed all sections of the CPA exam. I am also hoping to clear level 1 of the CFA exam before applying for a B-School.

Work Experience:

I worked for 4 years in retail banking part-time, while going to school. I worked as Teller and Personal Banker.

I am currently working in a Insurance company since past 1.5 yrs (by the time I apply if will be 2.5 yrs), we do For-Profit and Not-For-Profit work for the unions. I started as a Auditor, and was promoted to Quality Assurance Analyst. I was promoted again to the title of Collections supervisor.

I want to join NYU part time/full time or Columbia full time.

I am currently preparing for the Gmat exam and expecting/hoping to get a score in range of 710-730.

All advice and insights are appreciated. Thanks.

Excellent profile. Although you have a low GPA in undergrad I think the rest of your CV will offset that.

hkmba,

I recommend you get more work experience before you apply -- at this point, your chances are slim at the schools you mentioned. Moreover, even if you did get in (at any decent b-school), you're going to have a tough time competing against your more experienced MBA classmates (and MBAs at other schools) for jobs.

With maybe 2-3 years more experience, you may be in a better position for schools like NYU or Columbia, as well as in your professional career.
