Career wise I believe it's the person's drive that gets them to places, no matter where they go for education, but with your stats, you can defenitly get into some of top 25's, and top 25's usually are need blind, and award you finacial aid based on how needy your family is, so if your poor most likely you'll be getting a lot of help financially from ivies and schools in that level, however if your parents do have a large income but they can't afford college education, then schools like boston u will give you a huge financial aid package with your stats.

Tulane has a fantastic accounting course (Burkenroad Reports) that truly almost guarantees a great job at graduation. Not only that, but Tulane is rapidly on the rise and would surely give great deals of merit and need based aid to a person with your stats. I suggest you at least apply there as a safety/match.

Wake Forest has one of the top accounting programs in the nation and has consistently ranked in first or second place for percentage of graduates passing the entire CPA exam on their first sitting. It is a five year program, complete with internship at a major firm, and it includes an undergrad degree plus a master's degree in finance. My niece completed it in 2001 and has been extremely successful in the job market since then. She was offered jobs months before her graduation due to the prestige of Wake's program.

With your stats, there would probably be a strong chance of earning a major scholarship to Wake Forest. It is an expensive school, but well worth every penny for a successful career in accounting.
