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.

Mondays have been my biggest day all quarter. My IFRS course has weekly presentations, and because there are so few students, my group has gone 4 out of 5 times. Regardless of whether we are presenting, we always have a case study due on Monday at 8:30am, comparing the differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP. This week, we worked on property, plant, and equipment, so that was pretty interesting.Following that, I had to turn in my mid-term paper on Jerome Kerviel.

This quarter has absolutely flown by. I have barely had time to breath, let alone relax. I am currently taking two accounting courses (an IFRS course, and a cost-accounting course) as well as taking a trading and markets course, and my personal favorite (not!) an introduction to ethics course necessary to earn the Maryland CPA designation.We are already past mid-terms, and it seems like this quarter is going by faster than any other. Soon I will be done with the MAcc program, and my time at Ohio State will be but a fond memory.

My parents came to Columbus this past weekend to visit. We had a lot of fun and were able to do a lot of things we wouldn't have otherwise. We walked around Ohio Stadium and then went to Eddie George's for lunch. For dinner that evening, we went to O'Shaughnessy's in the Arena District for dinner, and then we went to the Big Bang, a piano bar across the street. The Big Bang is a lot of fun, with dueling pianos and a band that plays songs solely on request.

The Buckeyes just beat that team up north again, in what had to be an absolutely heartbreaking loss for Michigan basketball. Michigan had taken the lead 68-66 with 2.2 seconds left in the game. OSU in-bounded the ball to Evan Turner, and he took it up the court, and got off a three point shot with about .3 seconds left. He nailed it, giving the Buckeyes a 69-68 win as the clock expired! I can say, seeing the sad faces of the Michigan fans, combined with the exuberance of the OSU fans, was pretty exciting!Check out the video, it is pretty sweet. Evan Turner beats MichiganWhat a clutch shot!
