When do international interviews for australian schools take place in the US? The general interview time is late August - early October, but just wondering if they handle international students differently. Kinda sucks because Irish schools commence usually the 1st week of October, while the Australian schools are just finishing their interviews or just starting to notify people of acceptance/rejection. If given an interview, I'd like to see if I can find out my status earlier because if rejected, then I'd still want to make commencement in Ireland on time (if accepted there, of course). Aussie students, what did you do on your down time after graduation? There's almost a year free before starting in Australia! I guess I'd be working my arse off trying to earn plane fare money .
