As of yet, I have not been accepted into the Peace Corps, and if I am, there are still a number of hurdles to cross. Here is what I have done so far:
- Submitted references
- Had an interview
Here is what I have left:
- Wait for nomination (into the national pool)
- Get medical and dental clearances
- Get legal clearance
- Get placed
- Wait for an invitation (upon receiving an invitation, the recipient has 10 days to review the invitation package and decide whether to accept it)
I have decided that if I am not accepted into the Peace Corps, I will find some other way to go where the most help is needed. That thought is a little scary to me, because I have really become attached to the idea of being in the Peace Corps. The more I learn about the Peace Corps, the more I appreciate what it is trying to accomplish.
Tonight I will send an email to my recruiter and ask her how things are going...
