I am US Citizen currently working in Oversea and I am interested in Top 10 US MBA programs

My main concern is how admission committee will look at my career path change from Cross Border M&A to Interntional Tax. The reason why I chose Interntinonal tax was because Tax is as important as financial due diligence and valuation in M&A or JV fom MNC strategic M&A decision making. However, most of people don't realize it nor there isn't a CPA who have professional knowledge in both finance and tax.

1) I am a CPA has been working for Asia Pacific PWC: 1.5years at Assurance/ 2.0years M&A -> 0.5 MNC strategic investment -> EY: Plan to have 1.5years Interntioanal Tax
2) GRE 2011 scored V720/M800
3) Graduated in 2008 from UT-Austin with degree in Economics/ GPA 3.4
5) CPA
6) MIT/Stanford/Columbia/UCLA/UC Berkerly but i am willing to lower my target for scholarships.
7) 2015 R1 and R2
8) Strategy/Entreprenuership

Thank you very much!

Rather than a negative factor, your involvement with international tax can be a plus, since it is both distinctive and highly relevant for complex global transactions. However, don’t assume the adcoms’ appreciation of this fact – use your application and essays to portray how vital this area is; make them see it with your eyes. If you do it right, you will both enlighten and impress them.

Other points – since you’re aiming for 2015, if you can prep for the GMAT, you might consider trying to add that test. The programs do accept the GRE and will note your score, but generally they are still more comfortable with the GMAT and feel it’s a better tool for their assessment.

Your school list looks on target at this point; there are certainly other possibilities, and I suggest using this year to continue exploring. One program that's often overlooked for entrepreneurship is Chicago Booth; its Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship is a great resource.
