Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I have a huge break between some of my UG grades and when I finished my degree. This includes some Incompletes/F's when I left college...mostly because I didn't like it and was a lazy idiot but also to go participate in various wars after 9/11. Once I got out of the army, I got a BBA/MS in accounting, and work at a small company which helps with process consulting and accounting information system implementation. I'm CPA/CMA licensed with a few software certifications too. Promotions ahead of schedule but in a firm that's fairly small and new I don't know how well that will play. It would make absolutely no sense for me to get a top MBA and return to this job so I don't yet know how good my recommendations will be. I don't want to ask for any yet, because I might get written off as someone who is planning to leave.
My goal is to go into management consulting, then maybe start my own little firm one day whenever the next big thing comes out that requires lots of business IT consultants(like when the first Enterprise Resource Planning software came out and everyone needed it).
30 year old white male UG Cumulative across all schools(Decent state schools): 3.32, last 80 hours: 3.98. The black hole in my GPA is from 10 years ago. Grad GPA: 3.97 Cumulative GPA UG and Grad: 3.43 GMAT 760, balanced. I studied very little, could definitely improve. I know that sounds nuts but if I don't apply in the next year it'll be expiring anyway because of the 5 year limit. WE: Three years accounting/IT consulting. I'm more on the accounting/business side, we have others who have a computer science background. Working in these multidisciplinary teams should be a good selling point. Community service: None really, but I figure my military service will fill the gap of non-professional/non-academic experience.
Thoughts? Advice on things to do over the next few years to be more competitive? Waiting would provide me with some better professional leadership experience, but I'm getting a little old as it is.
