Hey dude,
Thanks for dropping by!
You have a veeeeeeery good looking profile. Oh yeah, and congrats on that most awesome GMAT!!! Well-done. Your TOEFL is great too, as are your grades.

A Big four job is good for top schools even if it's not necessarily one of the most preferred jobs. Buuuut what I am missing from your profile is: What have you DONE at work? What is UNIQUE about you? What about extra curricular activities? Volunteer work? entrepreneurial experience? anything extra that is unique and fascinating? Because at this top level, these things are really important.

I don't see any real weaknesses other than the competitiveness of your applicant pool, and that's why the above is sooooooooo important. I think your school list is a great start although I'd suggest you open up your school list to Top 20 schools and not just Top 10 given the competitiveness of that pool.

If there's any other way I can help, you just let me know…

Best,
JF
