"People think that when studying accounting or taxation all we do is sit down and work on problems or calculations; that's not the case at all. I'm writing formal memorandums on court cases, on fact patterns that I was given, and trying to figure out what the outcome should be and who should win—the government or the taxpayer, and things like that."  —Megan Ehrlich ’15, Senior Tax Accountant, Citrin Cooperman
