November seems late, but technically its before they make their final decision.
scholes said:I did mine from the end of sept until thanksgiving. I was offered invitations to interview before I even started the electives. I went into a relatively noncompetitive field, so I was confident that I would get interviews there anyways. If you think there is a good chance you wont get an interview without an away elective, then you probably would want to do it before november. Finishing the elective sometime by the end of October should be about the latest you should rotate at a program at which you feel you are likely not to be offered an interview without it.
