From industry accounting to consulting / banking?

Hey guys it's SZHB5 again,

After getting dinged by every single public accounting firm on the surface of the planet, I managed to find an offer from private industry starting at 50k with steady promotion. However, I heard the ceiling in industry will be low without big 4 experience, and obviously I will never get hried by a big 4 firm, so I am wondering if it's possible to get a super high GMAT, get into elite MBA, and transition into investment banking / strategy consulting? Anyone here with similar experience? RIght now I have my MAcc & BSAcc, graduate GPA 3.8 overall and undergrad GPA 3.7 overall, I think if I can get like a 760+ GMAT I might have a good shot at schools like Duke Fuqua and CBS.
