I am looking to transfer to a California University for business in Fall 2013 and the process of filling applications is coming soon. I am mainly looking to major in Accounting more specifically or have a concentration in accounting if the major is not offered. I just want to attend a school that I will do good at academically and earn a good set of skills for my career. Additionally, I am looking for a school with good job placement too, possibly internship possibilities with the Big 4.
Currently I am looking at the following schools, but cannot decide if this is the final list I ought to have.
San Jose State-Business Admin
San Diego State-Business Admin
Long Beach State-Business Admin
UC Riverside-Business Admin
UC Irvine-Business Admin/Econ
UC Berkeley- Econ
Santa Clara University-Accounting
Loyola Marymount University-Accounting
University of Southern California-Business Admin to Accounting ( I know that I must apply as a BA first and then once I get to the school I can apply for the accounting major after filling the remaining requirements there)
I ultimately want to narrow this list down to about 5 or 6 schools.
I am also considering these schools, but I am not too interested in them:
San Francisco State-Business Admin
UC Davis-Manaerial Econ
UCSB-Econ with Accounting
University of San Francisco-Business Admin/Accounting
Baruch College (New York)-Accounting
UT Austin (Texas)-Accounting
So if you could give an order to the top list and make any suggestions or share any advice or experiences, etc.
Your input is very much appreciated!
