Don't want to seem like I'm bugging you, but if you dont mind, how did you do?
Its just cool that there's another accounting major on here.


@Derrex, Guess that rules me out of Harvard then? Lol



I doubt they follow that too strictly.

I think harvard explicitly states that vocational majors are frowned upon compared to majors that focus on theory.

Straight from them :

"The Admissions Committee considers that those programs approaching their subjects on a more theoretical level, with attention to educational breadth, are better preparatory training for the legal profession than those emphasizing the practical."

Harvard frowns on everything.

Wow, eshort I admire your resolve. Your scores are exceptional. Gives me hope that one day I may be able to rise to that
level.
Do you have any tips/suggestions on how to effectively study?

I'm also enrolled in the 5 year program at my university where I can get bs and mba in accounting in 5 years and I hope to do CPA just like you.

You sound like a really motivated person, and hopefully you find the time to make it all work out. I have also heard the CPA is terribly difficult.
