Is public accounting possible for me? [#permalink] New post 09 Nov 2011, 22:24
Out of curiosity, I have a dilemma in that I graduated with a non-accounting degree with a GPA of ...GASP...2.75. But I'm planning on getting a Masters in Accounting and have taken CC classes already, which Im doing really well in. I know I don't want to work for a Big 4 Firm and so would it be possible for a national/regional/local firm hire someone with that kind of undergrad GPA? Would a high GMAT score and graduate GPA compensate for the low undergrad GPA?

Thanks

Don't be discouraged by your GPA. But make sure you score high on GMAT to prove your academic ability and write good essays.

Absolutely. Just get into a decent masters program, and you have it made. Just look to see what firms recruit at the school you want to attend.
