So to the experienced accountants here: What effect do you think this will have on current accounting students and hiring? What about internships? Now that I have fallen into this category when is the ideal time to intern?
Thanks in advance
Johnny, are you sure it's 150 to graduate, or 150 to be eligible for the CPA? Here in CA, you need 120 to get the BA, but 150 if you want to pursue the CPA.
