I am currently in the process of waiting for my notice to schedule for the CPA exam. I originally planned to go through Maryland, where I will eventually be licensed; however, they have an extremely difficult process. The main hurdle was that I would have to wait until I graduated until I would have my review even begin. From there, I was told it may take as much as 90 days to receive word from them.
With this in mind, I looked into taking the exam in Virginia. I have decided to do this, and then have my exam results transferred to Maryland, which should be a bit easier, while coming at a less busy time of the year as well. I am planning on scheduling through Becker tomorrow afternoon, with my first Regulation classes starting in early June. The time has come – it is time to become a CPA!
