When deciding whether to join the Peace Corps or not, I ran across a really helpful book that I wanted to share: So You Want To Join The Peace Corps
It answers questions ranging from application processes, medical kit issues, what happens if you get pregnant, packing, malaria, early termination, staging, training, housing, water and electricity, bikes, etc.
Definitely a good read for all you applying or thinking about applying--even for those who are lucky enough to have already gotten the invite -- and parents!
Stole this from Jenna's blog - I'm ashamed to admit that as an English major I forgot to give her credit. Please forgive me!
