Advice on Chicago MS in Accountancy Programs [#permalink]
20 Mar 2006, 21:40
I applied to a few programs around the country. But since I was an econ undergrad major and applied late in the process, my options were limited. Most likely I will be staying in Chicago to get my degree.
Graduated with an Econ degree from the University of Michigan with a 3.0 (not good, I know, if only I had put in a little more effort)
Took 4 accounting classes at DePaul over the last fall and summer semesters and got a 4.0.
Worked at a big law firm for 2 years and not interested in pursuing law, hence my interest in an M.S.A. program.
Scored a 710 on the GMAT
So here is the question that I would love to get some advice on from people who are involved in public accounting in Chicago and are familiar with the programs or graduates. What program would you recommend?
1) Loyola Chicago
2) DePaul University
3) University of Illinois-Chicago.
I want to work for a Big Four firm.
Thanks for any replies. I would really appreciate some insight.
I don't meet some of there accounting prerequisites. Basically, I don't have Intermediate I and II, which many top schools require. I also applied to George Washington, USC (fingers crossed), San Diego State, and I'm about to get apps out to Iowa and Florida State.
I'd rather go to a school downtown than in crappy DeKaulb. Have you been there? It would be like torture. All my friends being an hour away in the city and I can't hang out without driving. I'm all about sacrificing for the good of the cause, but it's still Northern Illinois.
