I'm going back to Haiti at the end of March for about 3 weeks. I keep thinking I'm going to get my invitation while I'm there! We'll see. Either way, I'm very excited. Time is going by quickly and I can't wait to be an official PC invitee!

In the meantime, I haven't heard again from my Placement Officer. Everything is done, checked, and completed. I'm just waiting for my file to be reviewed for placement!
Here are some thoughts I wrote on my other blog about Haiti over a week ago. Feel free to check it out!

So this was my non-update update. Nothing has really changed since my last post. Just an extra email exchange, just in case.

Evaluations required to become an Invitee:
DentalComplete. Peace Corps has completed your dental review. There are no dental holds on your account at this time.
LegalThere are no legal holds on your account at this time.
MedicalComplete. A decision has been reached regarding your medical review. Please look for a letter in the mail.
PlaceThere are no placement holds on your account at this time.
I love surprise toolkit updates when I'm not expecting them. I just got the checkmark back on the legal bubble. I'm just waiting on the last and most coveted bubbles of all...the Placement hold bubble. Dear Placement Officer, where art thou? My birthday is on Sunday, Christmas is next month. Is it too much to ask as a birthday wish or Christmas present for an email from my Placement Officer? I think not.
I'll keep you guys posted! Congrats on those of you who recently received nominations, clearances, and invitations!

"The Office of Medical Services has informed us that you have received your medical clearance. Over the next few weeks, your file will be reviewed by the Assessment & Placement Staff for further evaluation. This includes evaluation of technical skills, suitability and legal information. Upon completion of the assessment, you may be considered for an invitation. Please keep in mind that this stage in the process can be competitive as there are typically two applicants nominated for each spot available. Given this, an invitation is never guaranteed and applicants should make no plans to go overseas unless an invitation has been issued and you have spoken to headquarters staff to accept your invitation."
Woohoo! I haven't received the letter in the mail yet, but e-mail is good enough! I'm really excited. Hopefully I'll hear from my Placement Officer soon!
