Provided if/when I receive interview invites early (I have all my materials set and plan on being verified in early June) what is the earliest possible interview date? I've done some research and it looks about the 2nd or 3rd week in August. Do you think it's safe to return from vacation by August 15th? Just want to check before I make any plans.

No, you should sit by the phone and wait, suitcases and open ticket at the ready......joking,

Yes, it fine, Schools wont start getting any apps from AMCAS until July 1st, more likely mid-July thru the end of August. They have to be at least processed initially by the schools, get secondaries out, etc. The vast majority of students wont have interview invites before mid August (or rather much later)
