He Called Back!

The Status Giver called me back this morning. All I can say is that the Peace Corps seems to be doing its best to keep me informed. They have continued to surprise me with their responsiveness.

Here is the scoop: my medical reviewer is still working on summer departures. Its going to be a while before she gets to my file.

I read your blog every now and then, to learn more about the peace corps and the process and all of that fun stuff. I just wanted to say that you're a wonderful writer. It seems like you put so much though into every word you type. Kind of like a poem...I have a link to your blog on my links section on my blog. Hope you don't mind...

My boyfriend and I are PC applicants as well...soon to be interviewed.

Wow, thanks for the wonderful comments.

Sometimes I do spend a lot of time trying to get just the right combinations of words. Sometimes if feels like writing poetry to me -- I didn't think anyone noticed!

It's cool that you linked to me. I add a link to your site too.

You'll find that communication and efficiency is one thing Peace Corps does really well. Even here, in country, they have a system set up to have *someone* call you back or e-mail you within an hour, even if the person you're trying to get a hold of is unavailable. That, and the staff always seems to really want to help you.

I don't know how they bred that culture within Peace Corps admin-- maybe admin honestly respects the work we do--but I've always found the entire administration, in the USA and in Ukraine to be very, very helpful, very organized and very fast.
