Wink ...

I think you have to apply for your electives asap.
because they only accept the students who will or have already been in their final years. It does not matter that you are now in your 5th or 6th year, it all depends on whether you would be the final year medical student during your electives in the US.

Since most of them ask you to apply at least 6 months before your electives, so most of us should apply now!
