MAcc vs Double Major

Hello,

I am an Accoutning and Finance major at a small college in Kansas. I have accepted a tax internship offer with a mid-sized national firm for next spring. My plan was to do that internship and also do a summer internship with a larger firm (preferably Big 4). However, I was unsuccessful in obtaining a summer internship. My question is this: would it be worth it for me to go to a larger school (i.e. Kansas University) for a MAcc, instead of double majoring at my small school, so that I could have a better chance of getting on with a big 4? Or would I be better off trying to get a full time offer straight out of my small school? Or should I just settle for the mid-sized national firm I'm doing my internship with, assuming they will give me a full time offer after my internship.

Thanks
