PWC I am a little confused. I thought EY was in the big 4, not number 28. I guess you are a little confused and trying to find ways to make yourself feel better about not being able to work at EY. Sorry you feel that way. Wish you the best and feel sorry you won’t have the opportunity to work for EY.

Unless your name is Earl. Kidding, sorry Earl fish. Referring to company name.
