27/M/African American with CPA

Currently I am a senior at a Big 4 in audit in Chicago and have regularly gotten high ratings. I am also heavily involved with firm events such as intramural sports, volunteering, and on campus recruiting

GMAT: 730

Northern Illinois University: 3.2/4.0 GPA with 3.9/4.0 in major (3.2 is a result of premed classes at different school while playing college football, A's in nearly all finance and accounting classes)

Started online network/forum for accounting and finance career advancement and help (site makes significant profit also). I started tutoring services for kids needing help with accounting (all free) and volunteer with inner city kids helping one get to and through college.

Any top 25 but specifically Ross, Farqua, Stern, Booth, Kelley would be great (#1 is Ross) and looking to apply R1 2014

I want to use the MBA as a career change into a consulting role with the long term goal of starting a hands on charity helping inner city kids get motivated for college.

Actually, your GPA is not that low. It's actually fine (without being excellent), so not really a cause for worry.

I think your school list is pretty good (although you maybe meant Fuqua and not Farqua? ;) ), and as an African American with a good employer and fantastic GMAT I think you would have a good shot (and even could hope for some money). You might add another one or two schools to your list, and if you haven't yet heard about it, you should check out the Consortium to see how it is relevant to your application:
