Work Experience

3 year work experience as a Teaching Assistant (Accounting) at one of the University of Hong Kong

1.5 year practical accounting work experience, mainly about financial reporting and internal control

(I know that my weakness is my GMAT score. If I decide not to retake, which school am I still competitive for?)

(Of course, these schools are super hard to get in, so I have some backup schools. Then how about the schools listed below?)

U of Florida, Rutgers University, Florida State Univeristy, UC Davis and Irvine, Boston University, University of Arizona, University of Oregon.

Thank you all for your great effort to seriously evaluate my profile.
