Thank you in advance!

- Three and a half years consulting in a Big 4 specialty tax group (international tax, multistate tax, transfer pricing, etc.) at large east coast practice (NYC, DC, Boston, etc)

GMAT: Projected, 710-730


- Graduated Summa Cum Laude from liberal arts school in a small western state (think Montana, Wyoming, Idaho).
- Cumulative GPA is 3.92.
- Double major in accounting and political economy; double minor in philosophy and natural sciences.

- (Big 4 firm) intern case study competition team leader for winning group.
- Outstanding chapter growth (recruitment chair for my fraternity).
- Dean's List (x8).
- 1st place in ethics and professionalism (Business Professionals of America).
- Two years in a row, I won a competitive scholarship that is awarded to the top student in the liberal arts majors (history, political economy, philosophy, etc.).
- Awarded top accounting student by business department.
- Awarded highest academic honors bestowed by the college (above Summa Cum Laude). Five seniors out of a 250 student graduating class were given the award.
- Awarded honors in political economy (first student in over a decade).

Extracurriculars (College):
- President of ENACTUS.
- Director of Intramurals.
- Chairman of Senate Outreach Committee (philanthropy) for the student senate.
- Student senator
- Served as the recruitment chair, philanthropy chair, new member education chair, and alumni chair for my fraternity;
- Bassist for jazz combo (all four years)
- Rugby club for two-years (hurt my shoulder and had to give up playing).
- JDRF Volunteer

* Also, as the Chairman for Senate Outreach Committee, I put on a community 5k for cancer research.

Extracurriculars (post-college):

- Pro-bono tax consulting for underprivileged community members
- Pro-bono music instructor at local middle school

- Skiing
- Outdoors
- Both listening and playing jazz
- Reading

I realize I will have to narrow down this list. My plan is to apply to five schools - marked with * - during R1 and apply to three or four more in R2 if I am not satisfied with the results.

- Neither of my parents graduated from a 4-year college.
- Graduated from a performing arts high school where I studied under a grammy award winning bassist.

I am a few years from applying. What sort of things should I look to add to my profile?
