Work in a big4 but more in a Middle Office position rather than dealing with clients. Think delivery center.
730 goal currently scored 680
University of Central Florida - double bachelors in accounting and finance 3.7 GPA
Various types of community service but nothing spectacular like creating my own NFP
Held various leadership roles/clubs in college
trained new staff in current position at big4
Is anything M7/top 10 remotely reasonable? What should I aim for given my lack of proper work/extracurricular experience? I prefer to go to school in the northeast(NYU Stern is my major "target" if realistic).
'14 or '15, R1
If you are aiming to apply in 2014 or 15, you have time to improve the quality of your work and community service. If you do so and get the GMAT you are aiming for, then yes, you have a chance at NYU Stern and what I like to call the greater top 10. Consider Yale SOM, Duke, Georgetown, and Rochester Yes, I realize that Duke and Georgetown are not in the Northeast.
If you don't get that higher GMAT and cannot improve your experience, then look more at programs like Rochester, UNC, and Vanderbilt.
