So I just checked the JET website to tell a friend about the program and it turns out that they extended the deadline. I already sent mine in but this is good news for any procrastinators out there! Does anyone know why they extended it? Like did they not get enough applications already?

I blame Korea.

They said some people writing reference letters were having trouble submitting them through the online portal - that's the official reason, anyway.

I don't know, it seems like extending the deadline has become a tradition by now.

(In the US, anyway)

It's been extended about 3-4 years in a row.

Problems submitting the reference? Lol my references were dragging their feet about submitting the paper recommendation with the 3 copies, sealed envelope blahblahblah but when I found out that there was the option to send in an online only version they got those things submitted within 48 hours of me telling them. Its really easy so I don't understand why people are having an issue. Its good news for all the late submitters though!
