International Applicant
GMAT: 660
GPA: 3.99
Schools Applied: USC, U-M, UMN, OSU, UIUC, NYU, Texas A&M, Washington St.Louis
Schools Accepted: UIUC, UMN, OSU (Full fellowship + stipend)
Schools Declined: U-M
Waiting: USC (interviewed), Texas A&M (interviewed), Washington St.louis (invited for interview), NYU
Most likely to attend: OSU
I will likely to attend OSU Fisher since it offers me whole package, Is OSU's MACC program good in overall quality and reputation? I saw it on rankings but not sure about the future opportunity of its degree or how the U.S. employers think about it? Any advice?

You received full fellowship, as in full tuition waived? That is impressive.

Congratulations. I'd never heard of someone getting full ride + stipend on MACC programs. With that kind of performance, I'm sure you can find good positions post graduation, regardless of citizenship status, although H1 is a lottery system.

If I get KPMG to pay for my Masters, I will go to WFU. I will otherwise go to NC State. I will go to W&M if I get a full ride (they do not look at GMAT)

What are my chances of getting into UT? How much would I have to raise my GMAT?


nrdes234gs,

Since UT has the top Master of Accounting program (MPA) in the nation they typically require relatively high GMAT scores (usually above 650). However, you may be given some leniency due to your high GPA. I had a friend who scored a 630 and was admitted due to his high undergrad GPA. I am also applying to UT, Wake, and W&M but have yet to take the GMAT (currently studying my butt off). W&M is on my radar simply for the fact that it has a great program at a top-notch school & they waive the GMAT, which is definitely a rare combination. However, my top school is UVA by far.

Just curious, did KPMG inform you that they would pay for your masters? If not, how are you planning to approach them about it? I am in a similar situation with PwC but I have never heard of Big 4 firms paying for a MAcc degree.



JT12,

I read an article about KPMG covering the cost of the masters degree for a few top students, and I am going to meet with one of the managers of the campus recruiters next week. I am going to ask him about the educational reimbursement policy first, and then I will ask him about the scholarship program. Hopefully, he will provide me more information about what I need to do. I know that I would be stuck at KPMG for a few years, but I do not mind.

NC State has 12 fellowships that are basically the same thing; EY has some, and the students have to stay at EY for two years.

Why is UVA your top school by far? I do not know much about that program (I have been mainly focusing on NC schools).

NC State has great IT and ERM concentrations, but I think that I may end up going to Wake even if I have to pay full price because of the Financial Transaction Services track. I want to eventually work in Transaction Advisory for one of the Big 4 firms, and Wake may offer me a "short cut" around the traditional path.


What other schools in NC would you recommend for MAC and why? I'm a not an accounting or business major and I'm looking to make a change.

I am applying to State and WF, but I am also applying to UNC's online accounting program because I want to work too. Do you think that's unrealistic?


No...I'm applying to UNC as well. Not sure if I want online or on-campus. Didn't know much about the online until I called and did a webinar. I did land a job offer, so I may wait to see if they will help cover a masters.

Hi all!

Could really use some help!!

GMAT: 700
GPA: 3.76
Undergrad major: Biz Mgmt
Work experience: 5 years as an office manager in a small office
Schools applied (applying to): UT Austin, USC, UNC
Schools accepted:
Schools denied:
Most likely to attend: Unsure

These are my stats! And now for my question: I'd like to go to a top rated program in one of the warmer states (not up north) but the costs seem to be prohibitive. I cannot seem to get much information on how much aid is likely to be offered. So does anyone know what schools offer good aid packages and/or a cheaper? I'd be willing to consider a colder state or a slightly lower ranked (but still top bunch) program if I knew that it would be cheaper. Any ideas? Could really use some help!


I'm looking at UNC. I'm taking the GMAT next month and will submit my app then. You should have a good chance with UNC, I gave them my stats and I feel pretty confident. Have you reached out to any of the schools?
