A note of caution: As you surf the Internet, be aware that you may find bulletin boards and chat rooms in which people are free to express opinions about the Peace Corps based on their own experience, including comments by those who were unhappy with their choice to serve in the Peace Corps.  These opinions are not those of the Peace Corps or the U.S.  government, and we hope you will keep in mind that no two people experience their service in the same way.
