261Advice for PCV?
- Dec 27, 2003Good Morning.
My name is Janet. I am currently a PCV in Ghana. I will COS in
August, and I'm trying to figure out what I will do when I come back
to the states. I am currently on vacation, so I'm in north Dallas
until Jan 15.
My undergraduate degree is in Electrical Engineering, but I'm now
trying to change directions. I want to pursue International
Development in graduate school (or else anthropology or
sociology...). The only money I will have when I come back will be
the money that the PC gives me, so I need to find a way to pay for
school. Then there is the issue that most international devel.
schools require fluency in a second language - which I don't have.
Plus I think I will have to wait until Fall 2005 to actually start,
so I need a relevant job for almost a year. If any of you have any
advice for any of these areas, I would be extremely grateful.
