What can you tell me about Teach for America, or similar programs?

I will be graduating soon, and I think teaching is something I might be interested in, but not long-term. (Probably 5 years max.) Have any MeFites been in TFA or a similar alternative certification program? I am an English major, btw.
I am specifically looking at the Chicago metro area. Right now, I am trying to sort through my various options and see which one, if any, is right for me. I went to the official recruitment meeting tonight and have been looking on the web. Personal experiences and anecdotes are most helpful. Basically, I want as much info as possible.
