I count all my experience. If they don't specify by title, neither do I.

It doesn't really matter. They will get your resume and see experience break down. If they ask for 4 years experience and you submit resume and are counting 3 years full time + internship it can't hurt. They'll see when they get the resume the experience breakdown, so it's not like you're hiding anything. If it's a deal breaker for them they won't call you in for the interview, but can't hurt to try.

But also had a busy season internship before I started

My two seasonals as a seasonal intern counted as experience. Came in as experienced hire kek

Yeppppp! I included intern and salaried experience on my resume. PA intern hours count toward the CPA licensure too right?

Depends on state. Many states require not just overall general hours but specific hours in certain experiences and tasks. It's quite likely that intern level tasks will fit only some of these licensure related task, although at a minimum at least some of the hours should count. Check the State Board website for whatever state you're in because it will vary state to state.

Counts for NY license
