Invite is in the mail!

I woke up with one of the best emails I’ve ever received – my invitation is in the mail!  I’m about 99% sure it’s for Burkina Faso leaving on October 13th, but won’t know until I get the invite in my hands.

They sent it out yesterday (Friday) and since I live just five blocks from PC headquarters I’m hoping it might even come today, and Monday at the latest. I’m a little surprised everything happened so quickly as I’ve never actually spoken to anyone in the placement office for my entire application process – just 2 emails about my mortgage and French updates.

So excited! This definitely changes things.

    I stumbled upon your blog- I am applying to the Peace Corps soon (probably will submit my application in the next week or so). This sheds a lot of light on the while process and it is incredibly helpful. Thanks a bunch.

    Congrats. I just received an invite in the mail too. It’ll probably be for Niger, as i’ll be an English teacher. I was surprised too as I didn’t speak to anyone from placement, just replied to their emails and that was it. I guess we kinda lucked out (hehe. My invite should be here Monday, and i could end up in Burkina Faso also, who knows, anyways, congrats, and i know exactly how you feel right now.

    Thanks everyone! I’m spending a nerve-wracking weekend waiting around for this blue envelope. Tomorrow afternoon can’t come soon enough!

    Leah, definitely let me know if you have any other q’s. Good luck w/ your application.

    Congrats Mitch – would be great to get to know other folks heading to the area.
