I would wait until Monday. You don't want to be too pushy when they set expectations for you. If you really feel a desire to get your name in front of them before that, send a thank you email for the last interview & express that you are very interested in moving forward.

Companies understand that there are reasons students may need to take a break. This shouldn’t hold you back from getting an internship. Keep your dates (by year) of attendance at each college on your resume. I wouldn’t state your reason(s) why on your resume. The appropriate time to expl...
