Buenos Dias! I woke up this morning to find my favorite type of email in my inbox….a Peace Corps toolkit update! I assumed since I mailed my med kit in last week that it would just be an update telling me that they had received it, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I have dental clearance! I would love to hear from some other applicants/volunteers, is dental clearance always that fast? (As in..cleared the same day they receive your packet?) I like to hope this could be foreshadowing of the speed at which I will progress through the rest of the process (in case you haven’t noticed, I am an eternal optimist).
My update also included something else that I knew it would from reading about other applicants experiences. It says that they review programs leaving in the next four months first so I probably have quite a wait ahead of me before they even begin reviewing my medical packet since the program I am nominated for doesn’t leave until June. Until then I will just relax and enjoy the most wonderful time of the year with my wonderful family and friends (and continue obsessively reading Peace Corps blogs of course).
Heres a screen shot of up updated tool kit:
I hope you have a wonderful holiday and that the New Year brings everything you hope for. Until next time.. paz y amor.
