Do it when you can. I did my hospital volunteering during the school year on days when I hate late classes (when into the ER from 6-10am). It sucks, but just suck it up and knock it out. If you can get an internship or something like that at a hospital for the summer, you're golden.

Did most of it during the semester, although it was hard to mesh the doctor's and my schedules. One doctor only had two available times one this coming Monday and the other a month later.

This Monday is final's week. I have a final every day.
