Hello all,
I'm a 1L at a top 10 law school and regretting my decision to become a lawyer. I graduated from a private college in PA with a liberal arts degree this past spring, but I'm now looking to enter the field of accounting for really a host of reasons (good post-Big 4 work/life balance, upward mobility in the industry, better job security, etc.). Thankfully, when I withdraw at the end of this semester, I will have incurred no debt, and I had no undergraduate debt at all. My undergraduate GPA is a 4.0/4.0. I have yet to take the GMAT, but I took the GRE (on a whim) in early 2013 and scored the GMAT equivalent of a 640, so hopefully I have a good opportunity to improve.

I'm looking at MAcc programs within commuting distance from my hometown. Binghamton & Lehigh are the closest programs. I've heard good things about Big 4 placement, particularly Binghamton's; however, in pursuing a humanities major, I realize I've only fulfilled 1-2 of the necessary prerequisites, and both programs seem to require more than other, more distant programs I found.

With that in mind, I have a few questions that hopefully anyone here with any experience with these programs can answer:
1. Has anyone ever applied to either MAcc program with the vast number of prerequisites unattained?
2. Assuming I reach at least a 650 GMAT score, what scholarship opportunities are available for someone with my GPA?

Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide!

You're a 1L at top 10 law school and withdrawing? Is it because you don't like law or because job placement sucks even for top 10 law school? I don't know what's going on with law schools.

I don't know your LSAT score, but assuming it is high (you're 1L at top 10), LSAT is very similar to GMAT Verbal section. I got 161 in LSAT but 720 in GMAT (I'm strong in quant though). That is the reason I chose not to go to law school (my low LSAT score compare to my GMAT score)

As far as my research goes, Rutgers/Drexel/Baruch/Pace are the schools you can go as a non accounting undergrad major.

Recognized that this post is over a year old. Hopefully you are doing well now.
