So why does Burkina Faso look to be out of the running? According to the trusty source that is the Peace Corps Wiki Timeline, someone has been officially invited to Burkina Faso leaving June 21st, and my nomination is for July.
Exciting stuff to be sure, but I always try to keep in mind that half the time applicants aren’t sent to where they were nominated in the first place anyway. Yay for progress. Now back to the waiting game.
