I am beginning my applications for graduate school and am also looking at the PC.
1. As a RPCV do you wish you would have done graduate studies prior to going or if you did have a masters before you did PC do you feel it was more useful to have the education under your belt? Were you able to use the skills you learned to maker a greater difference?
2. Does anyone have any feedback from doing a PC Masters International or Fellowship program? I have heard from a few people that with the Masters International program students have a hard time matching their school project with their work in PC - that they have to make quite a stretch. While the Fellows programs for RPCVs seem financially good it seems like you have to do service at an org locally which might not be so useful for someone looking to get into international development. Thoughts?
