Expert's post
You actually have an unusual profile, being from Hong Kong and a CPA in a big 4 audit firm. Most Accounting applicants hail from Europe or the US, so this may help differentiate you--you should play up the international exposure you have had in accounting to help this along in the applications. Great GMAT, but your GPA is lackluster, so emphasize the rigor of your experience and your CFA designation to demonstrate ability to handle the MBA academics. I don't see any community involvement, which as an accountant is important since the stereotype is that they are not as involved and only push pencil all day. Seems that you have some leadership experience, which is good--make sure you give some compelling examples of teamwork skills and experience. The most important thing is your post MBA vision, so make sure you have that well thought through. If you do all this, you should have a shot at your target schools. Let us know if you need help.
