On the Uniform CPA Exam

BY JOSEPH SOKOLOVIC

I just took the uniform CPA exam, and I believe I passed all four parts on the first try.

I feel it is a great equalizer and allows people, such as myself, who have attended so-called “third-tier” educational institutions to demonstrate the knowledge we obtained rather than the amount we paid for an education.

Many students at the third-tier schools are unfairly stigmatized and not afforded the same opportunities as students from Ivy League institutions. The Big Five, and large regional accounting firms rarely, if ever, recruit on non-Ivy-League campuses. The difficulty of the exam levels the playing field for those of all educational backgrounds.
