Back

Well this last 7 months I've been focused on passing the CPA exam. Today I finished my last test, hopefully I passed and am done. It has been a long haul with lots of time commitment cutting into personal and family time. In the end I busted my butt over the holidays to take the last section. If I passed, which I believe I did, I will be a CPA by mid February. Really my Wife enabled me to be able to work full time and study 2 to 3 hours a day by picking up the slack.

Anyway, I will be more active now that I have a bit more time. Glad to be able to contribute again.

Feb 5th. This year they expedited results up from the normal March releases. My application was approved by the state board other than the requirement for the last test passing score.

Congratulations Eliot!
CPA is a great designation and not easily attained. For those that get their CPA a great career is ahead.
My guess is that, since you think you passed, you almost assuredly did. We all look forward to hearing your actual results in February.
