I applied to the Peace Corps last March, and everything was going
smoothly until I recently found out that I have been medically
deferred, until I have a small medical procedure done. The Peace
Corps stated that I then would not be eligible for service for at
least 4 months after that. I am very concerned that I will not be
able to serve at all, and am not quite sure how serious a medical
deferment is. Has anyone else had an experience like this before?
On a side note, I really enjoy the message boards - they have a wealth
of information - thanks!
