  2. "It's a trap" is all the advice I have for you...Also, enjoy giving the university more money. They don't express it, but I know they love ripping you off :). I thank you on their behalf.

    1. Why is it a trap - are the benefits not worth it?

    2. The benefits are only worth it if you have a CATO job lined up while the legacy system is in effect (assuming your year is still going towards that; I can't keep track anymore). The new CPA system will make any value of this program moot, which is why the SAF is shitting bricks, as it will open the door for other universities to offer the MAcc program. The cost is what makes it prohibitive rather than the intrinsic value of the program. It's honestly nothing more than a glorified diploma...and I say this as a grad from this program.

      However, your mileage may vary. This is simply my opinion based on personal experience.

    3. Is it still valuable for skipping the online courses which you have to take for two modules? (tax and assurance).

  3. ^ Not sure how it works under the new system. Under the old system it helped you skip CKE & SOA to go directly to the UFE. I assume so since it's supposed to take you directly to the CFE. I remember how they were telling us in masters last year though that they are losing out on their monopoly under the new system and other schools will be able to offer similar MAcc programs...
