Deciding to join Peace Corps is no small undertaking. There’s an application. You are required to have references.  There’s an interview.  Then a federal background check. And medical and dental exams [My god with the medical exams]. Then there’s waiting. And more waiting. And even more waiting.  Oh and let’s not forget about the packing.  All this before you even join.  Am I forgetting anything?
