What are my chances at UNC MAcc/where else should I apply? [#permalink] New post 16 Oct 2011, 20:55
So here's the skinny. Graduated from a private liberal arts school with a 3.5 in Sociology. Took a year off to figure out what I really wanted to do. Took a few classes at a community college to keep myself busy and fell in love with accounting. I took it in undergrad but was young/dumb didn't see the point. I'm very interested in pursuing it further.

I took the year off, I'm working for two different tutoring companies teaching the SAT. I've been testing around 720+ on the Gmat, gonna study for another month or so to try and bring it up some more. What are my chances at UNC Kenan-Flagler? I visited Duke this summer to check out their MMS program but I'm really liking accounting and want to go to a school where I can get on at Big-4 auditing. Visited a friend at UNC for chemistry and fell in love with Chapel Hill. My family has a timeshare in the area and NC seems like where I want to be in the future. Florida just isn't cutting it. The only downside is that I haven't had calc. Not sure if it's necessary for accounting. I'm very good at anything before it, but will it hold me back? Even if my GMAT quant is high? Had stat-for-econ and did reasonably well in it. And I'm sure I would do well in Calc if presented the chance, but I put it off during UG.

What are my chances at UNC MAcc? Where else should I apply? I lack the prereqs for UTexas. Vandy? Any other programs that are meant for non-accounting majors?

Thanks, I appreciate your time & help.

UNC is probably the best program for non accounting majors.

With your GPA and GMAT you are considered competitive.

Question is why do you want to switch to Accounting?

You might want to take a calculus math class in the meantime.

Good luck!

Took the GMAT today. Figured I bump this with some real numbers....

680 overall
44 quant
40 verbal

A lot harder than the kaplan prep stuff I was doing, but overall I'm ok with it. Any thoughts on how this affects my chances?

You will be ok, try to get residency if you don't already have it.
