RE: Volunteering in the Peace Corps: A Datasheet
I applied back in 2002. I got turned down because I had no college degree.

At the same time, the lady who looked over my application reacted in shock at one thing on it. She exclaimed, "You have no debts!"

I also spent some time hanging out with the returned volunteers. You'll meet some really cool people among them. And they are happy to talk to prospects.

One person also said to make sure you have prescription sunglasses if you need glasses.

Back in the 1970's, they had a slogan on their ads. It was: "Peace Corps.... the toughest job you'll ever love."
