What is your goal? Unless you have a very specific reason that you need to get into a top program, I would strongly recommend going to a cheap program that's going to be recruited for by the Big 4 in the city you want to work in. For example, if you want to work in Washington DC, then the Big 4 will be recruiting heavily at UVA, William & Mary, Virginia Tech, JMU, and to a lesser extent Maryland, GW, George Mason, and VCU. So, if your goal is to get into audit at the Big 4 in DC, going to JMU would be a smarter decision that going to a program that's technically higher in ranking.

If you have really specific needs, then a top program might make sense. But at the end of the day, it's a MACC. The goal is to get a job in audit, and to do that you need to go where the recruiters from your city are.
