I plan to pursue a professional degree after my PiLA Fellowship. Is this ok?

PiLA placements are full-time commitments. Our partners hire our fellows with the understanding that they will be present in the country and on the job for the duration of their commitment, with the exception of agreed-upon travel and vacation time. It will not be possible to take additional time away to return to the U.S. for tests such as the MCAT or LSAT or for admissions interviews. Therefore, PiLA strongly discourages placement as a PiLA Fellow for those applicants intending to apply to medical, dental, veterinary or law school during the placement year.
