So i just finished and submitted my application!!!! SOOO super excited but also sorta stressed about all the upcoming decisions/information.
Is their anyone out their that has any good advice...whether it be about the interviews, packing (i think ill need a whole bunch of help with), customs, things esp. women have to look out for when their overseas, and esp if anyone has gone that has left a boyfriend/fiance/husband in the states to volunteer....anything would really help me!!!! Also, whats the medical/ dental clearance like?? i dont know whether or not to be worried about that or not!i dont know of anyone that has done peace corps so im turning to you guys for all that advice i would usually get from my girlfriends!!!HELP! HELP! HELP!
Your best bet will be to read over the website like crazy, read through livejournal posts here and in pcfolks, and just wait for things to come at you. You will get all the recommendations you can handle from Peace Corps as you find out more about invitations and placements. I just started my blog (I'm leaving on Monday for Africa) elegantmachine.wordpress.com if you want to check it out :)
