Peace corps good idea or bad idea?
everyone's peace corps experience is different. mine wasn't great but somebody else's could be the "experience of a lifetime". it really depends on the country one is assigned to and luck. some volunteers get excellent assignments while others get really bad ones. having a positive attitude and making the best of it will not make much of a difference if one gets a really bad assignment. i personally would not do it again or recommend it to someone I care about.
