My daughter is a jr at high school and looking to go to emory or another school with a good undergrad business school with an interest in accounting.
I am hearing that Emory is changing / lowering the number of credits each course is worth? So you need to earn less emory credits to graduate, but the work is the same? An accounting class that might be 4 credits in the past will now be worth 3? Same class hours per week, etc. And then when a student graduates, they'd have 100 rather than 120? (just using 100 and 120 as examples - I don't know what the right numbers are).
But to take the CPA exam, you need some number of college credits above what you'd get from emory under the new plan!? So you'd have to go to grad school to get more credits to sit for the CPA, while someone graduates from a basket weaving school and has enought credits to take the CPA?
