I figured it would be nice...or make us all anxious if people posted when they received their card with their application number. Not that we will know if that means interview or not until end of Jan, but it would be cool to see how they are moving through the applications.
I currently have received no word. I also lost my tracking number so besides the promise the UPS man gave me, I'm not 100% if I got it in on time so fingers crossed.

Hi AshesTree, I received the card about 2+ weeks after it was delivered. But looking at other threads made by other people this and previous years, it seems like it varies (up to a month).

When did you send your application in?

I got mine in about 2 weeks or so after I mailed it. Which was a huge relief I can tell you. I mailed in my app on Nov. 16.

I maid mine on the 20th via overnight. It should have gotten in at 10:30 am and since I'm in NY I'm fairly confident it did, I just wish I didn't lose that tracking info.

This year, us Canadians just got an email notification :) Got mine about a week after it arrived.

That is really cool. I wished they did that in the US.

I have not gotten mine but I turned it in on the last day it was due. FML. I also got my FBI record back today so I can send them that.

Got mine right around December 1st, about 2 weeks after the deadline

Now you guys got me worried. I'm thinking in my head, "did I make sure to write my address on the SASE or did I accidentally write the embassies address or my work address?" Hmmm. It's been over 2 weeks since the deadline, when I turned it in, and still no SASE

tone the trolling down a bit and you might pull this off

I got mine on Monday! Application was delivered to D.C. the morning it was due.

Forgot to put an SASE in mine.. I handed it in in person, and I'm pretty sure I've read that it's not an essential part for the application. Still, would have been nice to have that extra confirmation.

Ya, the SASE isn't that important, especially if you gave it in person. Also, if you used tracked mail, you know it ended up there. Don't fret over them.

Got an interview! 14th of January, time to start prepping.

Blimey, that was quick! Did you get a letter or an email first? Also good luck!

Got the email on Friday night. They said they posted a letter on Friday, which I suppose might be at home, I haven't checked yet. Going by the comments on Facebook and the official forum, it seems like some of those interviewing on the 14th have heard already, but none so far with later interview dates. I was surprised too, hadn't expected to hear anything for another week or two at least.

Wow congrats! You nervous??

Out of interest, when did you hand in your application?

jjstrand
January 7th, 2013, 01:28
On the last day. It doesn't seem to be organised by any particular order.

Going by the comments on Facebook.

Is it a JET group...? What's the link for FB?

Though maybe there should be a new thread for interview stuff as it's kind of irrelevant to this thread lol
