What is everyone's age here in this forum?
I applied late and actually just took the GMAT and sent it to UNC. Waiting to hear back from them. I got a 690 on the GMAT which was my first time taking it so I'm guessing thats alright.
The main thing I'm worried about though is my lack of work experience. How much work experience did you guys have? I've been looking for entry level accounting positions or any "business" related entry level positions but so far no good. And I really need to get one because my long term goal once this MAC program is finished is to apply to a full fledge MBA program. Its kinda frustrating cuz it seems like the only way to get your foot in the door is if you already had the connections which I don't due to my completely different background.
How much have you actually looked into UNC? It caps the # of courses in accounting you can come in with at 3 or 4. I'm 23 and so is my roommate who's starting the same program. They don't look for work experience, especially accounting experience. I don't imagine anyone would have any relevant experience in accounting for this particular program, given the course cap. I'm sure you're not the only one looking at an MBA down the line...
Seeing as how I've already applied I think I have looked at them pretty closely. So yes I know about what they want and don't want from their candidates. I think its dumb but thats their policy so whatever.
And the job is more for when I apply for the MBA programs down the road. I want a position that in which I can show growth as an individual and employee. But the key of course if finding something to begin with.
