The Peace Corps boasts that it receives a great many initial applications for Volunteer service. It’s recently announced, for example, that applications are up “70%.”
+
 
+
However, according to the most recent statistics released by the Peace Corps to Wiki under the Freedom of Information Act, the agency has no current surplus of applicants '''who are medically qualified to become Peace Corps Volunteers.''' Only medically fit applicants can become Volunteers, so emphasizing the size of the initial applicant pool can be irrelevant and misleading.
+
 
+
Indeed, for the Peace Corps to tout how many initial “applicants” they have before the medical screening process may be intentionally misleading. '''The Peace Corps knows that applicants might lose interest in joining if they hear that the agency is having trouble filling its slots.'''
+
 
+
'''The truth is that the selectivity of Volunteers is minimal''' – other than to determine if the applicant is medically fit. One hundred percent of the applicants who are medically fit are invited to training and service as a Volunteer.

''Critical Data for Applicants'''''</div>
+
An excellent indication of the health of a Peace Corps country program is its early quit rate, the percentage of Volunteers who do not complete their 26-27 month term of service. The Peace Corps refers to this as the Early Termination (ET) rate. With the ET rate, Volunteers talk with their feet about their Peace Corps experience. If Volunteers in a particular country or program are quitting early, an applicant should wonder about the quality of that program.
+
 
+
The Peace Corps has recently started to allow applicants to choose the countries in which they prefer to serve. Wiki presents the ET rate data here on a country by country basis to enable applicants to make more informed choices.
+
 
+
 
+
'''PC Wiki recommends that applicants request to be sent to countries with low ET rates.'''
+
 
+
 
+
'''PC Wiki recommends that applicants avoid any country with an ET rate of 30% or greater. They should be cautious about any country with an ET rate of more than 20%.  They should request to be sent to countries with ET rates of less than 20%.'''

One excellent indication of the health of a Peace Corps country program is the survey responses of the Volunteers. It is easy to rank the countries using these responses. With the rankings from these surveys, applicants are empowered to request postings to higher ranked countries.
+
 
+
The Peace Corps now invites applicants to choose the countries in which they prefer to serve. Wiki presents the rankings from the survey data on a country by country basis to enable applicants to make an informed choice.

'''PC Wiki recommends that applicants request to be sent to a country with high ranked survey responses.
