so I'm taking a year off before medical school and I thought that it would be really easy to decide where to go or what to do, but now I'm completely overwhelmed by all of the volunteer programs/working abroad programs. Anyone have any great programs/experiences that they would like to share from their year off? If you taught english abroad or volunteered, did you enjoy it? one last question, has anyone participated in americorps or any other national programs and if so, was it hard to take time off for interviews? any info would be greatly appreciated...thanks!!
