    Hey everybody, thanks for having me :]

    Hey! I've never properly talked to anybody else with problems similar to mine, so this could be strange. My friends and family never know what to say and it's not the same talking to professionals so looking forward to meeting everybody. :sorcerer:

    CPA review meeting

    I am really interested to know if anyone has attended a CPA review meeting and what happens and who will be attending this meeting. I also wondered if I could be discharged at this meeting. I have not been to one before so I am a bit apprehensive.
