I'm 35yo, pursuing a Masters in Accounting next year. Based on comments from this board, is it realistic to pursue a position with the Big 4 in your 30s, or is that too old?

Masters in Accounting???? That is called an MBA and you do not go on for an MBA in Accounting. You go on for your CPA.

Uh, please read and research before you reply with undeserved authority. A MBA stands for masters of business administration. Nothing more, nothing less. You can obtain a graduate degree in just about anything, including accounting. For example,a masters of taxation, masters of accountancy.

You sound very uneducated as it's common knowledge that a lot of states require extended studies, i.e. master degrees, prior to sitting for the CPA exam.
