Miami Grads Ace CPA Exam

April 2013

Brent Schmidt and Kevin Warbis were two of only 39 winners of the 2012 Elijah Sells Award, given to outstanding performers on the uniform CPA examination.

Of the more than 92,000 candidates that sat for the exam last year, those recognized obtained a cumulative average score above 95.50 across all four sections of the CPA exam, completed testing during the 2012 calendar year, and passed all four sections on their first attempt.

As if being in the top .0004 of all candidates isn't impressive enough, it should be noted that a high percentage of the Elijah Sells awardees have received their Masters of Accountancy. Schmidt graduated with a BS in Business Accounting, and is employed with BKD, LLP in Cincinnati. Warbis graduated with a BS in Accounting, and is employed with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in Columbus, Ohio.
