You did good on your impact day project but when we evaluated you against your peers they performed at the next level and the next level folks were performing at the next level as well and so on and so forth. So essentially everyone from BTA/BA to SM was performing at PPD level. So you're a 4 now. Sorry it's not us it's the bell curve - Love, Counselor

My school offers 3 tracts for the masters of accountancy (audit, tax, data analytics/information security). Which would you recommend I focus on?

However, I do know firms teach you to learn their software so I am also wondering if my time would be better utilized picking tax or audit.
