- Pre-Health (Field Undecided)
Ok, so I'd really like to spend my gap year volunteering at an orphanage in Honduras (I'll also be able to spend time in their medical clinic), but I'm concerned about interviews. I know there's been threads about interviews during a gap year abroad, but their situations were a bit different than mine. I plan to apply early as possible (June 1st), pre-write as many secondaries as possible, and leave the 2nd week of June. I'll have internet there and a day off a week so I can finish writing secondaries in Honduras. Then I am planning on returning to the states for a month (last week of September-3rd week of October) to interview. And if I receive interview invites after I return to Honduras, I could come back in January for another group of interviews or fly back as needed if it's just one school. I don't want to return more than twice though due to expenses. So for those of you who have been through the interview process, how flexible are schools with moving interview times? And do you think the end of September/October is the best time to return if I apply as early as possible? I know a lot of people have had a problem with this in the past, but I'm hoping that if I give them a month of availability, they can hopefully fit me in! I'm not really interested if this is the most advantageous thing to do for admissions (I know it's not...), but I just want to know if it's possible. Thank you in advance!
