Hi everyone! I just got accepted to sit for the CPA exam through CA, I did this as I only have 128 credits. I wanted to start taking the exams during the first window of 2012. My plan was to obtain my CPA license through CA and then take course work to meet the requirements and have the license transferred. Now, I am wondering if this was a smart move. I have been thinking about applying through MD as you only need 120 credits to SIT for the exam, but you need 150 credits to become licensed. My question is, if I do happen to take my exams going through CA and I pass, can I transfer the passed exams to MD, without getting licensed through CA and complete the additional credits so I am licensed in MD? I was wondering if anyone has done this or if its even worth it at this point. I really appreciate any feedback.
If I were you I would just ask about the Transfer of credits to the Maryland Board of Public Accountancy. I would not worry about becoming licensed in MD, as you could get licensed in CA, and then receive reciprocity in MD.
