Question about admittance/chances to USC's MAcc program [#permalink]
27 Oct 2010, 19:42
I am an MSA student at SF State looking at abandoning the program (only one semester in, mind you) and trying to get into USC's MAcc program next year. I currently have a 3.36 undergrad GPA in history (3.41 with comm. college factored in) and a 640 GMAT. I am currenty in the process retaking the GMAT trying to push it up to a 670 or higher. Also, my grades from the grad program at SF State will probably be around 3.7 or 3.8 at the end of this semester. I also have decent EC's and internship experience.
However, I just e-mailed an adivsor with questions about the program and one of her responses was that the fact I am already enrolled in a masters program (at SF State) may count against me. I then explained the reason I wanted to transfer was because I wanted to work for the Big 4 and USC was great at getting people goods there and it sounded like she didn't like that reason (she said education should be the main reason, not a getting a job). Does anyone have an idea of how much that affects my chances or what my overall chances are of getting into the program?

Well, she gave you exactly what you wanted to know. MAcc is a short master's program. It is very unusual for one to transfer from one MAcc program to another. (not to mention, schools wouldn't like giving you credits earned from another school)
They have very little incentive to admit you because: 1) Your goal is to get a job. They have their own students to worry about 2) You have earned credits. If they give you credits for those credits, they are losing revenue 3) There's a lot of demand for USC's MAcc program. (They don't really need to accept transfer students)
