Two quick questions on applying... 1) How much of a time commitment does applying to medical school require? Would you say it is comparable to applying to college? 2) How much correspondence goes on between the applicant and the school? Like, once you submit the first part of the application is that it until you submit secondaries? How quick is the turnaround? It most correspondence by mail or can it be done by e-mail? I will probably be applying to medical school from Africa, but I will be able to return to the states for a short time during which I can have my interviews. I would welcome any advice from people who have applied from overseas (Americans or others) as to how complicated a process this really is. Thanks in advance!
