Help Elective Questions

Hey guys
I need advice from y'all please. What should one expect during an elective? What is required during an elective? How to make sure you do well since for many it's the first time doing clinicals in the US? How early should we apply? Is TOEFEL a requirement??
Thanks much appreciated.

First of all please read all the threads in this area of the forum, i'm sure you'll find more answers than those u asked.

I see u already have step 1... makes your life easier.

Go into all the programs website and read all their requirments. Write emails, and apply.

Apply early, and if u can afford it , widely.

What to expect? nothing but the best, great teachers. Just be early and leave late. Read alot, and have some inniciative.

good day
