AICPA Announces 2019 CPA Exam Score Release Dates

Boy studying

Alright, kids, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. 2019 CPA exam score release dates are not only out (they’ve actually been out for a hot minute) but have been announced by the AICPA, meaning they’re probably pretty much set. By “set,” I of course mean as set as they possibly can be. The AICPA examinations team and I’m sure whoever runs the NASBA Twitter account would probably appreciate it if I remind you that sometimes delays can and do happen, so although these dates are generally reliable, they are not absolute.

As promised by your benevolent overlords at the AICPA, score releases are coming more frequently in 2019 as the 2018 schedule was merely them fine-tuning CPA exam changes deployed that year. Looks like everything went as planned and they can move forward in confidence without further torturing CPA exam candidates testing resulting in score release holds.

If spreadsheets are more your thing (LOL, who am I talking to), here’s a handy one.

As is tradition around these parts, we will continue to announce score releases just before they are expected to occur, and offer tips and tricks to recover after failure in the days that follow because shit happens. Plan accordingly!

Elijah Watt Sells Award Recipients Make the Rest of Us Want to Puke

The AICPA announced the winners of the Elijah Watt Sells awards yesterday. For you mere mortals, this is an award for the 10 highest cumulative scorers on the CPA exam.
Glancing over the recipients we notice that two Big 4 firms (KPMG and Deloitte) enslave employ five of the recipients. A couple of recipients work in industry and a few more work for smaller, local firms.
This leads to the obvious question of why the hell P. Dubya and E&Y were totally shut out? Grant Thornton and BDO were also blanked. Are the honchos at the Radio Station and Big D giving the worker bees more time to study? Are P. Dubs, E&Y, et al. cutting out the bonuses for passing and thus destroying anyone’s motivation for passing? Are those of you looking to pass already choosing between eating and sleeping (and maybe sex) so studying just isn’t happening? Sells was a Big D founder so maybe the whole thing is rigged? Thoughts anyone?
Oh and congratulate the recipients while you’re at it (without vomiting on them).
