I’m in process for the green card and will likely get it next year. Should I wait to apply for MBA next year when the green card is approved? Does it make difference in success rate if I apply as a foreign citizen (Chinese) vs. a green card holder?

Much easier to get accepted to top programs as a permanent resident (or with expectation that green card will come through before program start). This is especially true for those from over-represented countries like India and China. Recruiting is MUCH easier if you don't need to be sponsored. Since your ability to find work coming out of an MBA program is considered as part of the admissions process, your status is important.

Thank you!!

Depends if you are going in state. Then you can get a resident rate vs non resident rate

I have a post-MBA offer with Accenture Strategy and I'm seeking advice on whether I should pursue this offer, or if I should continue to recruit for MBB (which may open more doors/opportunities). I previously worked 4 years at Deloitte Consulting. Where do people from Accenture Strategy (not Accenture Management Consulting) tend to go? Is it possible to have similar opportunities as MBB firms or do you have to work harder to get MBB-type opportunities?
