Do you have any advice or tips you would like to give prospective students looking at applying to MAC programs?

Familiarize yourself with the program and reach out to the admissions team with any questions. The admissions team is excellent and they will direct you in the right path.

Why did you choose the NC State MAC Program?

The MAC program stood out to me because of the strong reputation it has with CPA firms. On top on that, the AIR program and the recruitment process. I made the right decision to attend the MAC Program!

What are your expectations while attending the MAC Program?

While attending the MAC Program, I expect to be mentally challenged with critical thinking and problem-solving. I expect to increase my knowledge of the tax side of public accounting. Lastly, I expect the program to help me prepare for the CPA exams.

What are you looking forward to the most while in the Program?

I am excited to begin a new journey at NC State! I am looking forward to expanding my network and building long-lasting relationships with my peers. I am also looking forward to CPA study sessions with other students.
