hey guys I am thinking about studying abroad my last semester of undergrad. I am a senior and will be applying in June 2018, but I talked to the study abroad advisors and they told me that my transcripts take some time before being processed back to my state university. the study abroad term goes from February-June 2018. I plan on submitting the first day we are allowed to, but will this hold back my chances of getting an interview if I don't have my transcript from the international school? Has anyone had experience with this? Also, do you think it is a bad decision if I am studying abroad while submitting my application. I plan on writing my PS, taking the DAT, getting my LORs, and all the other official transcripts before I head out of the country. Should I need anything else before I depart? Thank you and I hope I hear from some people.

Since international "transcripts" are meaningless it is unlikely that they will have any bearing on whether or not an interview will be forthcoming.
