...in the following cities (listed from favorite to least)

1. North Carolina (particularly Charlotte, but the research triangle works as well)
2. Dallas/San Antonio (not Houston...also don't list UT-Austin since that's a given)
3. Boston and Philadelphia (I guess NYC as well)
4. San Diego, Los Angeles, and Phoenix area (don't list USC since that's obviously the biggie in that region)
5. Florida and Atlanta area

Thanks! I have no idea where to apply/what programs to look at so this would be of great help, especially since, as you can tell, I'm all over the map!

Have you consulted the PAR list that is stickied at the top? It lists the top-rated programs.

I'll list a few programs that I know off the top of my head...

North Carolina - has NC State, UNC Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest
Dallas - you could check out Southern Methodist
Boston - BC is the only one I'm aware of
Philadelphia - Villanova has an MS in Tax that's quite good. Drexel will be offering an MS in Accounting next year... it's by no means a top-rated program, however they have a pretty good reputation with the firms in the area.
NYC - Baruch is a top-rated. Fordham has a program as well.

I did, but I don't see a lot of programs you listed on this, for example:

I didn't see NC State, Southern Methodist, Fordham, etc. so how does one get a feel for some of these programs and how they place? Will the overall prestige of the school make a huge difference or is it mainly up to the person?

Fordham was on the list where they broke it down by size: download/file.php?id=10456

Overall, there really isn't an abundance of MAcc programs. Basically I focused my search on major cities where I was considering working, and researched schools in the area to see who had a program. I cross-referenced it with that list, and then also researched the program's local standing. NC State might not be as prestigious a program, but tuition is much more affordable and it's located right near Raleigh.

Basically, you can research the facts they have on their website, and contact the admissions office for information regarding job placement (how many have jobs at graduation, how many obtain jobs in Big 4 firms, where do most of their grads work, etc). Just because a program isn't on a list doesn't mean it is a bad program for you. Many of these programs are smaller or newer and thus haven't gained the recognition of some of the PAR report rankings.
