I'm applying next cycle but I had a couple of questions!
1) My family wants to take a trip before my sibling heads off to college and I was wondering what the best time would be to take a 8-10 day vacation from June-August? I am hoping to submit my AMCAS once my grad credits come in the last week of June and ACCOMAS (DO) sometime in mid May. I know that it is not ideal to take a vacation, but I really have no choice.
2) I am currently reflecting on my experiences and a few summers in college I taught a class at my home for the family members/neighbors/elderly trying to help them pass the citizenship test. They weren't native English speakers and they wanted a native speaker to help them learn english/help them learn the material from the citizenship test. The class was at my home, I did not charge any money or anything, and I created exercises for them to do for "HW" and for class we did group discussions. I merely did it because i thought it would be fun lol I thought it was an extremely rewarding experience but I wanted to make sure this is ethical and not something that will be looked down upon. Can I write about this experience in my application? Also who would I list for the contact info, it was at my house and my mother spread the word of the class by mouth to friends/family.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
