Invite not here yet … but more info.
October 4, 2010
So my invitation has not arrived yet (I’m crossing my fingers for today but most likely it’ll be tomorrow or Wednesday) but I did receive a call from placement today.
After finding out on Friday that I was getting an invite I emailed my PO and asked for more details, but I also put a call in to the general Education Placement desk just in case. My PO emailed me back and said I’d have to wait for any information until the invite was received. I was a bit disappointed because I know many people who receive invites find out in their final interview the region or departure time or something …
But, a person from the Education desk called me today and was able to give me the following information:
Region: Eastern Europe/Asia
Now, since Eastern Europe has never been mentioned to me during this entire process, but Asia was one of the regions I was being considered for, I’m going to stick with that assumption – that it’s Asia.
And with a departure in January, that means it would have to be THAILAND (if previous/current departures are correct).
I would say that I’m not letting myself get too excited without receiving the invitation … but, that would be a lie.
I’m so freakin’ excited!!!!!
When I first started this process and thought of the places I would like to go, Thailand was absolutely on the list. Granted my list was a mile long, but still … I think it would be a phenomenal experience. I also have a friend who just got back from a ten day trip to Thailand and said it was incredible. I don’t doubt it.
So, I’m waiting for the invite, but if deductive reasoning proves correct, it looks like I’m going to be a very happy camper 🙂
I still haven’t made my final decision whether to serve or not – but things are definitely leaning that direction!
