Hello all, I have a question for anyone that has studied abroad, particulary if they have done this during the application cycle. I am planning on taking the MCAT in April 2005 and hopefully following everyone's advice in getting my application in to the schools as early as possible. However, I am also looking at and seriously considering studying abroad in Chile from July to December. My schedule is only allowing me to do a trip in that fall or the following spring semester and it is something I really would like to do considering I am a spanish major and I think it is something that could help to set me apart in the application process, but in terms of filling out secondaries and doing interviews and all that good stuff, would it be foolish of me to spend my fall semester in south america? Has anyone been in a similar situation or have any advice as to what I should do?
