I read somewhere that you get so many chances to decline an invitation. After receiving my invitation recently I had some doubts and tried to look into my option of declining the invitation. I could not find any info online about what would happen if I did so. I talked to my placement officer and asked her, but she told me "it is highly unlikely for applicants to receive a second invitation....because there are so many other applicants waiting for invitations". That surprised me because it was counter to what I had thought. Is that an accurate statement or was she just trying to discourage me from declining?

Your recruiter is full of CRAP!!! I knew of many volunteer, including myself that turned down their first invitation, then were invited several more times to other countries. You take the one that is best. Don't let your recruiter screw with your head, simply because she gets commission off of how many people she can get to accept their invitations!

This is the answer I found in a chat session with a recruiter on the peace corps website.

"Well Stacey, it depends on why you reject it. If there is a good reason then you will most likely be offered something different. However, if you are rejecting in search of another location youwill get pushed to the back of the line and may not get a
nother invitation depending on what is avialable.."
