look, stay away from places like this until you know. it is a long wait and it will drive you insane. it did to me. But keep busy and try not to think about it. every year the wait kills many souls and crushes hopes by breeding paranoia about an interview which lasted 10mins or so.

I'm not having any trouble keeping myself distracted AND visiting here every day or so. I think it's just a matter of being realistic and knowing that the world's not gonna end if I'm not happily munching on yakisoba that I paid for in yen rather than made myself this time next year.

Of course, I've got midterms, grading, teaching, and interactivity projects to keep me busy when the lot of you over on the other side of the world are snoozing away. :lol:

Just relax. Life's gonna go on. Then again, I suppose it doesn't actually have to. :roll:

You find out in April? This is where I feel superior and say, "Heh, I'm LEAVING in April suckers!" I have to pass my fourth year of university first though...

just do wot i did

post annoying questions about anything you can think of like asking people what their favourite type of crisps are.

that way you get to be on here but also not think about japan.

best of both worlds

Do existing JETs go to the tokyo orientation that new JETs go to?

Only one from each prefecture, I think. We could apply to be Tokyo Assistants, but the deadline has now passed.

I think I read somewhere in one of the forums that JET will only tell you if you are hired in April, but will not tell you where you are placed until June. Can anyone confirm this? :?:

I'm not sure of the dates, but they release the short list in april and it is a month or two later that they nail down placements.
