Hi! TIA for your response. I'm considering applying for a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant or PIA (I would be teaching too) before dental school. I'm interested because teaching is very fulfilling for me and I like learning languages. I've taught and tutored a lot in college so it would not be too out of character. I know that going to interviews will be more complicated than it would be if I stayed in the U.S. Aside from that, would participation in either of these programs be viewed as an advantage and/or a disadvantage when applying to dental school? Is it common for pre-dental students to do this? Thanks for your input.
