Begin looking for programs; scramble to get application in before deadline

Announcement Date: May 31, 2014

I begin looking into program opportunities, find that the ones in the areas I am interested in a) depart mid-2015 and b) have a May 31 application deadline, so I scramble to pull together my resume, references, college transcript, and personal essays.

By the end of the month, I apply for Peace Corps service.
