I too, am considering it. But that is 3 years down the road. (You have to have a college degree to take part I believe)

I've heard great things, I had a teacher who did it and loved it. But... I've also heard some horror stories. It really depends on where they send you to be honest. My advice: Study the language of the area you would like to get shipped out to, it will definitely help your chances.

A friend of my dad and a girl I went to middle school with did it/is doing it respectively. I just got my nomination and if my medical stuff checks out I SHOULD be invited for a program next October. I don't know what kind of stories you're looking for though...

EDIT: ^ Not necessarily, but if you don't have one you need relevant work experience/certification etc. It's best to have a degree though, for sure.

I was planning on joining, before I fell in love.

Now I have to rethink my life.

A) That's foolish.

B) What does that have to do with Peace Corps?

I think it would be an awesome thing to do but I hear that they cut back funding for those kinds of things so it's harder to get in the program now because they're taking fewer people. But I agree with the user who said it would be useful to learn the language of the area you're going to.
