AChekhovGun, By no means is anyone saying that you're locked into accounting after two years of experience. What everyone is saying is this - if you're looking to transition to a highly competitive job in the finance or consulting industry from your background, it's going to be quite an uphill climb. Your lack of non-accounting experience and "middle-of-the-rankings MBA" is going to hurt you as you'll be fighting for spots against post-mbas with much more or much more...
Initially when I was contacted, I was slightly hesitant not knowing all the details. After meeting and speaking extensively with all the people involved, I am definitely going to do it. I respect each one of them quite a bit and I feel like this will be an amazing learning opportunity. At worst, this is going to be a good story.

A couple months later, you get offered to join his tiny firm of <5 people. Pay is better and you...
If you're interested in utilizing your undergrad education at all, I'd suggest Patent Office -> Law school. That seems to be a fairly common path for someone of your background.

What kind of job?

All that link shows is that, people...
