Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of me officially submitting my Peace Corps application, though it was in October 2004--nearly two and a half years ago--that we decided that we were going to join the Peace Corps. Even in just the last year, a lot has changed: we both graduated, got married, moved back to our home town, and started new jobs. I can only hope that we're nearing the finish line of this whole process!
We did actually get some encouraging news today--Paul was contacted by a placement assistant to ask for his final transcript (after I was worried about sending mine in when I graduated a month ago, we forgot to send his in for 9 months!). He faxed it in quickly and the assistant's e-mail said that once she received the transcript, she would pass our files on to our placement officer for a "final assessment." I'm hopeful that our placement officer will get to our files soon so that we'll remain well ahead of the "6 to 8 weeks after medical clearance" timeline. Only time will tell!
