I am trying to get my timeline worked out for applications (either this year or next, haven't decided which yet). My question is, if I apply mid-June, when should I expect to start receiving secondaries? Also, when should I try to have them completed by (in order to be "early")? My impression is that you receive secondaries around July/August and should try to have them in by September, but I'm not sure if this is accurate. I would like to fit in some long-term travel abroad (2-3 months) and am not sure when I could do this in a way that wouldn't interfere too much with secondaries/interviewing. Thanks!
