Does a high GMAT score alone mean much?

Earlier this month I applied to the Master in Accountancy program at a state university. I have an excellent bachelor GPA, but it’s from a 3-year math/comp-sci program at a Canadian university.

In short, I knew my chances weren’t good. … until I took the GMAT today and scored 780. What now? [more inside]

Accounting firm in need of client management software

Background - I work for a small accounting firm of six people right now. We have 1 cpa, 2 staff accountants (Im one, currently working on my CPA) and the rest is bookkeeping/admin staff. We just hired a new administrative assistant because of the growth we experienced this year and plan on hiring more CPAs in the future. With this growth comes the need to be more organized, no longer is it possible for my boss to keep track of where every project is, how far it is along and who it is assigned to it. So we need some sort of well known software. (Nothing terribly obscure please) [more inside]

Are there any web-based flexible apps for doing all the expense reporting you might need for a small business' bookkeeping needs?

Need accounting software design with IT consulting in mind

I've been struggling to find accounting software, online or PC/Mac based (either will do) that is suitable for a computer consulting practice. I need to be able to handle the typical basic things done by QuickBooks, like invoicing and estimates, simple A/R and A/P reports, etc. But that isn't enough. I need to manage multiple bill rates on a per consultant/per customer/per job or work order basis. QuickBooks doesn't do that, and I've tried hard to find out how to make that work. Any advice, hive mind?
