You have a good profile. If you have just 2 years work experience with less leadership experience, it might be pulling your application down. How many years of experience will you have on joining day of your MBA? Were you successful at PWC? (awards, promotions, etc)

On the extra curricular activities, you should definitely highlight your role at university alumni club. Bschools tend to like it.

I need more information to advise you on the schools. Good luck!

Thanks for the reply interviewbay!

A little bit more about my PwC life:
- Promoted to Senior Associate half a year ago, will have 3.5 years of work experience upon joining date of MBA
- Leaedrship experience with leading newly joined associates: assigning tasks to associates, explaining to them the importance and relevance of the task they're assigned to, and helping them solve any problems they come across.

My work comprises mostly of:
- Analyzing company financial statements, e-mails, as well as intercompany relationships to ensure everything they reported is accurate and no fraud is involved
- Traveling to different parts of Asia (China, Japan, Hong Kong etc.) to meet with clients and discuss their needs (Learned a great deal about doing business in Asia and conducting myself in a professional manner in front of clients)

Thanks for all the help and please let me know should you need any additional information!

You have an average experience at PwC. You have to dig deep into your experience and come up with good examples for your essays. Spend a lot of time on writing and reviewing your essays. They will make or break your application. Good luck!
