Background: Applying in Fall 2018 for Fall 2019 start date.

Work experience: 2 years of work experience (3 years upon submission of applications in Fall 2018) in Big 4 Public Accounting, Audit. Currently attempting to transition into Transaction Advisory Services.

Extra curriculars: Volunteer work at local animal rescue shelters (10+ hours each week). Volunteer at LLS. President of Beta Alpha Psi during college. Undergraduate Teaching Assistant during college. IM Leagues (need to show some personality right?)

Undergrad school/major: University of Pittsburgh, Accounting/Finance

Certifications: Licensed CPA

Race/nationality: White, US

Sex: Male

Stats GMAT Score: 760 Total, 49Q, 44V, AWA 6, IR 8

Undergrad GPA: 3.85

Post-Grad Goal of MBA: To secure a position with a BB Investment Bank (specifically M&A/Core IB division), with the ultimate goal of transitioning to Corporate Development for a F100-F500 Company

Target schools: Chicago, Columbia, MIT, Duke, UVA, NYU. I will apply to Wharton since I'm located in Philadelphia but that's obviously a bit of a pipe dream. I would be happy with any of these schools and I know that my career goals are possible at any of them.

I can spin a story but still think my WE/Demographic will lead to an uphill battle for all of these schools. Really hoping I can secure a TAS position.
Thank you very much in advance.

Thanks for sharing your profile. You are applying from a tough demo but you do have a strong profile in spite of this uphill battle so I do think your chances are stronger than you think. Given your elite GMAT and GPA, good work experience and solid ECs you are competitive. Now you need to let the rest of your application, particularly your essay help you stand out. This is the area that can help you breakthrough
