I kinda want a 335i too because I wanna have a car to mess around with. If I get an M, I won't be turning wrenches as much I would on a 335i.

Idk, I'm like a girl. Can't make a decision. Lol

Yeah lol. SS&G. Second largest firm in Cleveland. It's that resume builder I need.

I've heard horror stories about the big four. Like 70-80 hours a week during the internship. I feel like that's kind of intimidating to a student.

Haha true. Only in this case, more hours = new car!
nice man! good luck

E92 M3, the e60 m5 is infamous for its problems

You can definitely turn wrenches on an M, I just installed my supercharger over the weekend. Though the price tag on the parts is a little higher.

As for audit, you'll quickly find that what you do in audit doesn't resemble what you did in your financial accounting classes either. Regardless, you do learn a lot through audit and it's a good resume builder. I did it for 5 years and that experience lead me into the M&A stuff.

what would be awesome is an angel investor that says "here's 60k, I want xxxx back" at that point we're set(i say we because im in this with my two buddies). We've already registered an LLC in Nevada, and like I said currently undergoing the final design process. Already have a manufacturer/importer lined up just working on a solid business plan/marketing/website now to rope in investors. Prototypes are mostly done (wasn't cheap but gotta have something to show) but if it comes down to getting many small investors, we'd go public and give XXX of shares per $$$. Not there yet since I don't feel comfortable seeking investments without being 100% ready to go the second someone says "here's my money" worst case, we put it off a year or two, and fund the thing ourselves. I'm excited!

True what you said. Although, for tax it does resemble a lot what i studied in school. Money always counts but end of the day, if you are living just to work, then dude please. There is no point. Some people do live like that but not me. I am hoping to become R&D tax accountant for some Tech firm after my 5 years. Interesting work all day. Gets deep into tax laws. Although end of this year, I only have 3 years. 2 more to go

Take your time for sure man. Enjoy life a lil too. I did 60% of my masters in tax and all four exams in the first year I worked at EY. Only I know how I did that. Glad all that is done now. Thinking of doing CFA exams though. I have a dual degree in finance & accounting. But finance always scares me. Not enough stability in job like accounting.

That's another thing I was considering as well. The dollar to horsepower ratio for mods on a 335i is much more attractive than it is on the M3. Like I said, I'm so indecisive right now lol. I do know that I want the car to be AW with black interior and it has to be a 6MT. Haha

I heard that there was a lot that you learn in school that you won't use out in the field. Which is fine. It was so hard going for that first internship/job and the firms would as "What are you interested in? Audit or Tax?" I was hoping they would let me phone a friend or something because I had no idea what the difference was haha. But I guess you have to take one and run with it. Which is what I'm doing with audit. I'm excited to see what I'll be doing soon.

I feel like my life is gonna be in the fast lane these next few years. I gotta finish up a few credits to get my 150. Not sure if I wanna do that quickly on a few bs classes or just do it as part of my masters. I was gonna get a dual degree but I felt like it was a waste because I was already getting an accounting degree. I guess it would have been nice to have the 150 right away though.
