Why did you choose Presbyterian College PA Program?

Presbyterian felt like home during my interview. The faculty and student body are so friendly and welcoming, and I am confident that the professors will provide us with a quality education to be successful as physician assistants. I loved that from the beginning of my interview the faculty showed great interest in me outside of what was listed in my application. I received my acceptance shortly after my interview, and knew PC PA Program is where I wanted to be and will consider home for the next two years.
