I just wanted to get some feedback from people who applied to US med schools while living/studying abroad. I plan on teaching English in China for the coming year and hopefully scheduling interviews in a 1 month (or maybe even longer) block of time when I would come back to the states. I have received many different answers from people regarding this issue. My premed advisers and other med students have told me that med schools would probably try to accommodate me and that I should go for it. But at the same time, other people have told me that this is a bad idea and not feasible because med schools would not try to accommodate me. Do you think it is feasible to live abroad and apply to med school in the same year?
