When I began researching PA schools early in my application process, I was interested in moving further south to finally get away from the cold winters up north. Upon consideration of the many programs in North Carolina and the surrounding states, Methodist was a front-runner from the beginning. I had never been on campus, but after reading the testimonials from current students and seeing the incredible PANCE pass rates, I knew I strongly desired to get an interview with this program.

Thankfully, I was granted an interview, and my mind was made up from that point forward. The efficiency of communication from the staff, the organization of the interview process, and the beauty of the facilities made me want to attend no other school but Methodist. Upon my acceptance, I cancelled the remaining interviews I had scheduled because I knew I would receive an outstanding educational experience at Methodist.

Since then, my experience in this program has been excellent. The professors have such unique and extensive experience that is incorporated into each lecture, and it is apparent that they care about us not just as students, but also as individuals beyond the classroom setting. In addition, the camaraderie among the cohort is something I would not change for the world. We truly are all in this together, and it is encouraging to be in an environment that is not centered on competition but rather on mutual success. The decision to come to Methodist has been one of the best decisions of my life, and I would encourage anyone interested in an exceptional PA education to apply to this program.
