Need advice for non-accounting undergrads [#permalink] New post 21 Oct 2013, 03:23
I am an international student whos studying at a small liberal art college in New Hampshire.

My stats:
Business Administration Major w Finance & Accounting major
GPA: 3.78, Major GPA: 3.85
GMAT: 720 (M: 50, V: 38)
TA for Financial Accounting n Research Assistant last yr
I do not plan to take TOEFL > I can only apply to programs that waive TOEFL for intl students who have studied undergrads in the US.
strong recs: one from my accounting prof for whom I was a TA and RA. one from my direct supervisor at college (she used to be a Manager at Deloitte)

Do you have any advice/suggestion what MS Accounting programs I should apply for? I would expect to receive some types of financial assistance for my master degree (I can only afford a part of the education).

Thank you so much!

USC has tons of international students. I believe this year, we have about 25-30% from out of the country. Their average profiles are very similar to yours.

However, one limitation is that you can only apply to the Big 4s. Mid-tier and regional will not give you sponsorship for your visa. So if your goal is to work at the Big 4 over here, then USC is probably one of your best options.

Thanks for your advice. I really want to work for Big 4 after graduation. I will have the final interview/office visit with PwC Boston (internship) in 3 weeks. USC is a great school, however, they do require TOEFL.
