Hey, guys, thanks for taking the time to help me out. I'm at a mid-tier state school and planning on applying to the following schools, in order of desire to get in:

1) UT-Austin (REALLY want to get in here)
2) Illinois
3) USC
4) BYU
5) Virginia
6) Washington
7) Texas A&M
8) Michigan
9) OSU
10) UNC

I've got a 710 GMAT (q47, v42, I think, but don't quote me on that. I remember 73%ile Q and 95%ile V) and a 3.8 Accounting, Finance, and Spanish. ECs are good but not great. I'm a TA for two professors (four classes total including one MBA) and while I haven't lined up an internship yet (switched into accounting last winter and all major recruitment is done in the fall here) I'm confident that I can line one up for this coming spring. Also, I'm retaking the GMAT in a couple weeks, so if a higher GMAT would seal the deal that can still maybe be done.

Anyway, based on my readings here (long-time lurker on admissions threads) I've got a pretty good shot at any of them, but I don't want to get my hopes up. Can any of you tell me whether my interpretation is justified, whether any of these are huge reaches, etc.?

Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

quite frankly, i think you have a great chance to not just any of those accounting programs, but also to the top mba programs if you gain some WE.

I totally agree you should be able to choose any MACC program you want. Good luck even though you do not need it :wink: I would not bother taking the gmat again either. You are above all the averages.
