So I’m applying for MBA and will hopefully graduate at 26 with a degree. Lookin to find the best way possible to make my way to some sort of buy side role. I’m currently in low sized real estate PE in my hometown and I’d like to get out lol. Only problem is that my undergrad GPA sucks so an excellent or even great grad school might be out of the question. Was thinking maybe do concentration in acct and then move to FO after maybe like 2 years of an acct gig? Maybe CFA too? Is this realistic?

I think I made a $90k tax mistake. From 2002 to 2016 I paid AMT. I never filed form 8801 because it was really complicated and I couldn’t figure out how to answer the questions plus I was still paying AMT every year so I couldn’t apply any rollover credit anyway. Kinda forgot about it but now think that I could have recovered the AMT in 2017+ and it’s probably too late now since I never filed the 8801s for any prior year. Total AMT I paid over those years was about $90k.
