Hello.
My profile is:
Under GPA : 3.46/4.5 (WES version converted to the US Standard 3.26/4.0) - Top 10 school in Korea, Business Administration)
Grad GPA : Currently 4.0/4.0 (I can maintain around 4.0) - Master of Accountancy in top 40-50 business school in the US
Work Experience - Accounting Department at one of the global companies in Korea (5 years)
GMAT : 730 (Q50, V38)
Reserarch Experience : Nothing, Planning on applying for RA at Master program I am currently studying at
Math Background : Business Math in Undergraduate (Grade : B)
Statistics Background : Nothing, Planning on taking SAS course during winter
Letter or Recommendation : Planning on getting 1 from accounting research professors and 2 from accounting lecturer
Research Interest : Financial Accounting, Earnings Management
Target schools : around top 20-50 Schools (Arizona State University, Boston College, UC Irvine, and so on)

1. I would like to apply for some programs this year even though I know I am not that competitive right now and do not have enough time. Is it an acceptable idea to apply this year without research experience and math background?

2. If I apply next year after adding a research experience and statistics background a little bit, as mentioned above, will I be more competitive?

3. Please evaluate my profile and feel free to give me any advice.

Thank you very much.
