Has anyone gone from VISTA to Peace Corps or the other way around? I am in the beginning of my VISTA year but I know the application process takes time for the Peace Corps. I am trying to formulate some sort of timeline to begin the process and any other advice or suggestions other may have who are more familiar with the subject.

I have also applied to Peace Corps in the past and I know there is a relationship between the two agencies, VMSU or the state office would know more about transfering.  My paperwork took some time as well but I recieved a decision after the interviews in about three or four months, there's FB groups for people as well that are interested/going.  A local University may have a Peace Corps rep to help and a local Alum group for PC meets reguarly in most major cities.  I hope the best for you in your decision and I know that a lot of Peace Corps alumns have joined AmeriCorps and vice versa, it has been great having the whole CNCS family together after the new rules were passed!
