Oh yes, the all important Peace Corps application timeline. I spent months staring at these longingly, hoping that mine would be as short as some and that I wouldn’t have to suffer a wait nearly as long as others.
Without further ado, here is mine:
Application Submitted: August 12, 2015
Under Consideration for Rwanda: September 9, 2015
Interview Request: November 27, 2015
Interview Conducted via Skype: December 2, 2015
Invitation Received: February 1, 2016
All Medical Forms Submitted: April 1, 2016
Medical Clearance Received: June 14, 2016
Staging Email Received: August 19, 2016
Staging: September 19, 2016 in Philadelphia
DEPARTURE FOR RWANDA: September 20, 2016
Mine was definitely a longer timeline than many, but I also applied very early compared to many people that I know for my desired departure date. I spent months biting my nails but it was certainly worth it in the end!
