    Anyone have any experience using PALS to apply for a license, and their experience of a time line of when things were being reviewed and completed?

    My experience verification form was mailed out on Friday, and per NASBA CPAE, my score information was sent a couple days ago. Obviously I don’t anticipate a quick turnaround, but just curious of when I can expect to start seeing updates on my application in PALS.

    BEC - 82
    FAR - 76
    REG - 79
    What a journey! It took me 12 attempts, do not give up, keep going! Praise God!

    Updating this to share my experience and timeline with things being received and approved. Hopefully this can help fellow future PA CPAs who must apply using PALs:

    Applied for License on 9/11/2020, and the Criminal History check was done same day.

    09/18/2020 – Had experience verification form mailed, and was received and under review by 09/24/2020
    09/21/2020 – Emailed NASBA to ask when my score information and transcripts would be sent to my State Board, and NASBA responded, stating it was sent a couple days ago.
    9/30/2020* – Educational Transcripts and CPE requirements were updated to completed and not applicable, respectively.

    *Had a bit of a learning lesson with the experience form. This is mainly my fault for not reading, but the form only showed 11 months and 4 days. I have to submit a second form showing an additional 26 days for my experience to be approved/completed. Hopefully once my CPA emails the extra form, my experience gets approved.
