This will be my 3rd and final time applying. Not because I'm aging out, but more because I'm trying to switch careers. This has been my first option after finding out I hate accounting, but the ATSA is brutal (and I passed all 4 CPA exams on the first try). Unfortunately, I can't keep putting all of my eggs in this one basket and pushing back my career change every time I don't score well enough. Definitely hoping I am able to get it this time, but if not, my life can't be on hold. Good luck to all, especially those that have been here for a few years!
