Hello, everyone!

1. Name or Nick Name: Lauren

2. Education (show your school pride, list major/s and minor/s) Where are you at in the process? I've got a BS in Wildlife and Fisheries Science from Tennessee Technological University, and I am currently finishing my MS in Biology at Eastern Kentucky University. I haven't started the application process yet, just gathering . information and trying to psych myself up to apply (I've wanted to apply for years, but other stuff has always intervened). EDIT: Actually, I'm working on getting the application finished. Just have to write the essays and really think hard about exactly where I want to go and do.

3. Where are you going to serve/are you serving/want to serve: I'm definitely willing to go pretty much anywhere they want to send me, but I'm leaning towards the Pacific Islands or Africa. But that changes pretty often!

4. When are you leaving/did you leave: As I haven't even started the application process yet, no time soon, but I would like to go in the next year or so, after I get my thesis finished. I've noticed that some people have said that certain programs have certain travel dates. Does anyone know where I could find those online?

5. What are you going to be doing/are you doing/want to do: I'm wanting to focus on wildlife management, ecology, or environmental stuff, but who knows? I'll do whatever they assign to me.

Hey! Welcome to the wonderful world of PC applications. I just got my invitation, after a long application process, to Ukraine, and I'm super excited!

As for a timeline, just Google "Peace Corps Timeline" and it gives a list of dates for the year of 2009, and what countries' programs start when.
