I'm considering only applying to the MPAC programs for either UCI, UCD, or UCR, which all accept the GRE or GMAT. Not sure if it really matters on which exam to take. If you got into UCI, you didn't eliminate schools that accepted the GRE, right? Curious, why did you eliminate schools that accepted the GRE??


Of the schools I was interested in (aside from those 3 UC's), more accepted only the GMAT, while UCSB was the only school that only accepted the GRE. I contemplated taking both tests but decided against it. It shouldn't matter which test you take if all your schools accept both, but you may also look into UCSB's Economics program. My friends who work in the Big 4 say that Berkeley and UCSB are heavily recruited, perhaps even more than UCI.

GMAT > GRE because it is the official exam for business school programs.

Note that USC MAcc is the top program to get into in California and it only accepts the GMAT.

Do you guys have any tips on the personal statements and what topics i.e. UCD might be looking for when writing the max 250 word essay? Any advice would be appreciated also for the UCI applications, just want to hit key points especially for these essays. Thanks for any help guys, I'm trying to apply for this Fall for all UC programs, FYI I decided to stick it out with GMAT, thanks for all the advice on that as well!

I don't quite remember what the topics were, but beyond the obvious (i.e. good written communication skills are reflected in your personal statements), I'd say:

1) Think about what is necessary for future accountants. You can talk about experiences you've had that reflect why you'd be a good accountant.
2) If you have any interesting experiences that tie in well, that could make you stand out a bit.

I also got accepted to my first choice UC Irvine for the MS Accounting Program!! Anyone else excited?!

Could you please tell me whats the difference between UC Riverside Master of Professional Accountancy (MPAc) Program (A. Gary Andersson school of management) and the Irvine one. Are they both under the University of California??

Is there any difficulties on getting a job after graduating from the riverside??
I see there is a huge difference in tuition , thats why Im doing this question. Any advice will be appreciated.

The University of California label is pretty broad, for example: UC Berkeley is a top tier school while UC Riverside is a decent school but definitely not anywhere near top tier. With that being said, UC Irvine is a good school and ranks in the middle tier of UC's while UC Riverside is in the bottom tier of UC's. More likely than not, your chances of getting a job after graduation will be greater at UCI than UCR.

I think the housing offer status is what comes out in September, but I think the community assignment was supposed to come out by now. I sent an email to inquire about this, I'll let you know if I get a response. In addition, I haven't been contacted for the mandatory career advising interview yet, and all the times I chose were next week and the week after! I hope I start getting some responses.

Assassin, I have some bad news. I received an email from Verano Place (my first choice community) that said they only have 15 spots left in their apartments and ~430 applications on the waitlist. I don't have any specific information about Palo Verde and Campus Village (originally I only applied to VP and PV... d'oh!) but I know they are over-burdened as well. If you don't hear anything soon it might be time to look at the ACC-owned apartments on campus or at housing off campus.

Yeah, thanks for the info; I got that email too. Now I'm looking on the off-campus housing website.

Btw, did you hear back from the career service? I already had it, she just helped correct the resume.

Good luck!

Yeah, I had it yesterday. Looks like I've got homework to do (revising my resume)! I'll look into off-campus housing if I don't hear anything this week. Fingers crossed.

Hi failbears,
If we don't get the on-campus housing, will the $20 processing fee get refunded?

I don't know but I kind of doubt it. I figure whatever the result is, they still got slammed with all these applications and did what they could and "processed" them.

Me neither. You could try the on-campus housing owned by the private company, but I think I'll try my luck asking friends of friends and perhaps Craigslist if anyone needs a roommate.
