  7. Re: I am currently studying abroad in Japan, does this help me or hurt me?

    Be careful to emphasise that you've got a lot to learn/want to learn a lot more about Japan.

    Re: JETs in the Inaka

    I lived in the deep inaka without a car but I used the opportunity to ride my bike to the nearest station (about half an hour). We didn't really have any entertainment so I made Japanese friends.

    I don't think they really care about GPAs, given that I got in with my shitty uni marks for my first degree.
