CPA Exam Score Release (aka How to Torture a CPA Exam Candidate)

Yesterday I found out through my NASBA State Coordinator that they did not receive my grade from the AICPA yet. This means I have to wait until June, even though I sat for the Exam during the 1st wave score release date range of April 1 through May 8.

For anyone going crazy wondering when they will receive their score, here is a chart I received from my NASBA state coordinator:

The following chart provides approximate score release information.

  1. Hey Cooking Accountant! First off, your blog is really neat and entertaining - neat kinda like a CPA, but also verbose like a certified writer. What can I say - I like it! Good luck with your exams and hope you get that job offer. Once you share with your future officemates your baked goodies, I'm sure they'll realize that you are more than just another accountant! Ciao!

  2. Thanks Anonymous! I'm glad you like it!

  3. I randomly came across your blog and I love it! I just graduated and hope to get my CPA someday and I wish you the best of luck!

    ps. I love to cook too! so I will be checking out your recipes. :)

  4. Thanks Ms. Alecia!

    Congrats on graduating! I wish you a lot of success in your future!

  5. I just took my first section today, and didn't wonder about when I'd get my score til I started wondering about it just now...

    Sounds kind of excruciating! I MAY hear in only a few weeks... or in 2 months??

  6. That's true, Kel. And, unfortunately, we don't have any control over it. Sometimes they hold tests that had a new simulation they are testing out (we have no way of knowing).

    The best advice I can give is to check for your grade occasionally and try to concentrate on studying for the next part. But that's easier said than done!

  7. Best of luck on passing the CPA exam. Love you pen name. My wife has a blog on cooking, if you are interested in some delicious recipes:

    If you enjoy the Italian cuisine, may I suggest the Passatelli's? It's great comfort food.
