Are you familiar with Michael Maren's book on the peace corp?http://www.amazon.com/ROAD-HELL-Michael-Maren/dp/0684828006It was an eye-opener for me. He describes his extensieve peace corp experience and condemns the corp for its destructive cultural and political effects. There is no way in hell I would join the peace corp without reading this book.We all want to help people and be useful. Have you thought about practicing law for those two years? Are lawyers really that useless?
