Sorry for all the questions. I'm just so happy for you.
Thanks, Janice! It means a lot. Lol, not quite a 4.0, but my final grad GPA should be near 3.6. Sunday actually was the ceremony. They have a ceremony in December for Fall graduates and another in May for Winter/Spring graduates. I didn't go to my undergrad ceremony so it was nice to go to the Master's one. I'm actually not working right now, but I will start looking for a job soon. It will have to be a job that will give me qualifying CPA experience. You need one year of qualifying experience, 150 credit hours of education (which I have), and the passing of all four sections of the CPA exam to become licensed in Michigan. I plan to sit for the first section in February, so next month will be spent doing a ton of studying. I interviewed with one of the Big Four accounting firms this Fall. Unfortunately, I didn't get the job, but it was an honor being selected to interview with them. Thanks, again!
