"Random thought, Don't take the last class you need to graduate and take another term or two. Double check the college does not have a done in 4 or your out policy. If they don't do the longer plan.  Also just ask the finance…"

"The same college where I'm earning my undergrad offers an MSA program, and I could go right into that without taking the GRE or any other tests.  Do you think that could be worth doing?  The downside is that its much more expensive…"

"Thats exactly what I'm trying to find out.  I'm fluent in Spanish- more classes with that won't help.  I've actually taken logic too- it was a fun class.  Might you know of any minors that would make the CPA stand…"

"Would an MSA be that more specialized master's degree?  I've been warned by lots of people not to get an MBA before having some work experience, would the MSA be a different animal?"

"Thank you all for commenting.  It seems like I have three main options for how to get the credits: 1.  Stay in college a fifth year to get the MSA. (However, I'm concerned this may make me too overqualified as a new grad). 2. …"

"My father was, too.  OP:  If you can take graduate classes without taking the GRE, special applications, special fees, etc., by all means, do."

"Accounting generally:  As an individual client with sometimes-complicated income taxes, I'm surprised by how hard it is for non-1%ers to get forward-looking tax advice.  Stuff like the guy on AoM a few weeks back whose wife was going…"

"David, Many business schools have an MS Accounting program set up to get the extra credits you need to sit for the CPA exam. That would be my first stop. You can also consider an MS Finance, but those are less common and only recommended if you are…"
