Here’s Your Open Thread for the Final CPA Exam Score Release of Q1 2019

Failed CPA exam

Congratulations, kiddos, you made it through the first quarter. I’m sure there were many victories, failures, and breakdowns along the way but so goes the ballad of CPA exam domination. March 19 marks the 1/4-way point for CPA exam scores this year.

As we round the bend into the second quarter, I’d like to remind you all of something my former boss in CPA review used to say (and probably still does): the CPA exam is a journey, not a destination. Did he actually say that? I’m pretty sure he did. Anyway, you get the point.

If you struggled through the first quarter, there’s nothing like a fresh quarter to get back on the horse and try again. If this is the end of your journey, pat yourself on the back for a job well done, whether it took you two and a half months or two years. Wherever you are on your path to licensure, all you can really worry about is the here and now.

Alright, cheesy half-assed motivational speech over. We won’t see another score release until May, so in the meantime, if you need to talk about the exam, ask questions, or simply lob insults at me because I will never be a CPA like you will be one day, my virtual door is always open. Except when it’s closed, in which case just leave a note on it or something.

On this, the most blessed eve of the last CPA exam score release of the first quarter of 2019, I leave you with this delicious rant about AICPA torture. It may or may not be a troll, but just in case anyone is interested in taking on a totally 100% slam dunk case against the AICPA for pain and suffering, you know who to hit up. Good luck, everyone!
