I am currently a senior in high school and need some advice about college. I have pretty good grades, 1370 SAT and a 97 average. I started taking an accounting class this year and enjoy the class a lot. I intend on majoring in accounting but my biggest issue is where to go. While I know about the big name business schools and know that I can get into a good amount of them I am also a competitive golfer. I am not good enough to play at a school like Texas, Indiana, Notre Dame or any of the big business schools. However I have opportunities to play at some smaller schools. While I realize that reputation of a school does have importance, how much does it really matter. If I were to go to a lesser known school and major in accounting and get a masters in accounting, would it be harder for me to get a job at a firm. I plan to sit for the CPA and I think that would have a large influence in a firm hiring a graduate from a lesser known school. Also would it help graduating in the top of your class at the lesser known school versus graduating in the middle of your class at a bigger school. Thank you for any information.
