"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…"

"David, Yes, an MSA (or MSF for that matter) is different. It is designed to be an immediate entry post-graduate degree. Most people will have little full-time work experience. Internships will be about it. The original purpose of the MSA was to get…"

"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. …"

"OP should talk to lots of accountants to get an idea of different career paths.  Forensic accountants aren't my favorite accountants to interact with, but it may be OP's thing, especially if he likes working with law enforcement…"

"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…"

"I was having a similar discussion with my husband just this morning.  He has a MBA.  I'm a lawyer.  Neither of us are accountants, but we work with accountants a lot, and I'd like to get my CPA some day. We're in a huge…"

Jeff O. replied to David H's discussion Accounting CPA advice
"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…"

Rick Shelton replied to David H's discussion Accounting CPA advice
"Ask your professors. You may not need to get a Masters as you'll only need 14 more credits (4 or 5 more classes). They may have undergrad courses to suggest, which are less expensive than grad courses. An alternative is to take grad courses in…"

"Grad School.  A few of our MBA's are CPAs getting more credits.  Also just go to grad school for finance. "
