Hi Everyone, I'm a current JET with plans to apply to medical school in May 2010. I want to know if anyone has applied for and interviewed for medical school while a JET participant and, if so, his or her experience. Peace, :020: KS

I'm a first year JET and started applying this june. I flew home twice to get all my interviews done (I had luck with scheduling, got 3 out in a week in silver week) and have 2 acceptances. It takes time and money, but its definitely doable.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Did you request interviews for a certain time period, or did they just happen to fall during Silver Week?
Also, will you have to leave JET early for med school orientation / classes? My sister started in early July.

I requested dates and the schools honored them. I'm waiting on one acceptance to a school which starts in July, in which case I'll break contract, but right now the school I'm planning on attending starts in late august, so I'm good.
