so excited I could scream
okay I did scream a little.
I went into my Tax final with an 89.5% in the class. No pressure right? The cutoff for an A is a 90% (and no, they do not round up). I LOVE tax. It was by far my favorite accounting class. However, tax is tough because it is soooo rule oriented. There are a million rules and a million exceptions to the rules (I guess that is accounting in general). It's like learning a new language.
My tax final was 18 pages. EIGHTEEN PAGES. It took me 3 hours. I had never seen so many MACRS depreciation problems. Pages and pages. It was rough. I didn't know if I was even capable of driving when I left. The only thought running through my mind was "Death by Tax final."
Well, I got my grade for the final today and I got a 94%!!!! I was so pumped.
The best thing is that is pushed me above that 90% threshold and gave me an A in the class!*
*I did not get an A+ like this picture denotes.
