Internal transfer to mccombs

<p>Hi all,</p>

<p>I've accepted to UT COLA(Econ) for Fall 2010. My first choice was Business and second choise was ECON. I've decided to go to ECON and try internal transfer. </p>

<p>I have read all articles about internal transfer to mccombs in this web. Still have questions and need some advice.
First off, my total transfered credits are 72 hours (CC + my first bachelor degree). </p>

<p>There are requirementss that I found from UT website</p>

<p>Requirements to apply (edited)
1. Twenty-four (24) hours in residence at UT-Austin </p>

<ol>
<li><p>Demonstrate Foreign Language Proficiency (one of two ways): </p></li>
<li><p>Course Requirements:
Calculus I (M 408K, M 408C, or M 403K)
Calculus II (M 408L, M 408D, or M 403L)
Microeconomics (ECO 304K)
Macroeconomics (ECO 304L) </p></li>
</ol>

<p>I have finished all course requirements, aced all and I will take clep test for language requirements(bilingual). I will take 12 hours for this fall and next spring then it will be total 96 credit hours. </p>

<p>I'm worried because I read that "Students with over 90 hours or a completed degree are encouraged to consider other options, such as completing a degree in their current college/school or alternate institution with the option of pursuing an MBA or MPA degree at a later date."</p>

<p>So is it basically over 90 credit hours holder can't apply? Does 90 hours credit mean only earn from UT or overall credit hours? I'm also thinking about doing MPA program. I know ECON students also can do MPA. Is it difficult to getting in MPA program? My overall goal is become an accountant. </p>

<p>Any advice, tips or comments would be greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>P.S anybody goes to Orientation on 28th June?</p>

<p>I think having 90 hours will hurt you, but you never know. Why not just get a BA in ECON and get an MBA later? Instead of spending extra years in undergrad.</p>

<p>I have the 14th for orientation.</p>

<p>I would call the McCombs office of undergrads and ask them if your 90 hours will be an issue. I know for a fact, external transfers would not be accepted with 90+ hours. What did you get a bachelors degree in and what is the cumulative GPA for the 72 hours. If I were you, I would just apply to the MPA program. I think there was this one person on the business forum who did that and passed the CPA. Going back to get another bachelors should be a last option. Take your chances with the MPA application and see from there. You have to take the GMAT though.</p>
