Default Reapplying for J1 Visa??

Hey guys,

I was hoping someone could shed some light on this. I'm currently on a J-1 doing a prelim year. If I match into an advanced track (which would start July 2017) it would mean I would have to go home for a year after my prelim is done. Will there be a problem getting another J1 visa to start in 2017? Does the 2 year home rule apply in this case?
