    Re: 2016 Alternates Thread

    It was due by the 24th for us, so I think we'll be seeing some soon. Hope it's some of you guys in here!
  2. Re: Current & Former JETs - Your best and worst experience as a JET?

    Yeah, going to Sendai. Awesome! Once I get specific details of where I'll be in the city, I'll shoot you a quick message to see if there's any places near me.
  3. Re: Current & Former JETs - Your best and worst experience as a JET?

    Oh, gotcha. Craft beers?! That's pretty awesome. Guess I'll try to look deeper beneath the surface to see what's available around me when I get there. If I could find something like that, it may help...
  4. Re: Current & Former JETs - Your best and worst experience as a JET?

    Oh, this was probably back when they were reducing positions on the programme (and before they reduced the salary!). Boring? Despite being so close to Tokyo? I guess Saitama really does deserve its...
  5. Re: Current & Former JETs - Your best and worst experience as a JET?

    All that does suck, especially the bit about pneumonia. At least your doctor stepped in. I can see why you wouldn't want to do JET again.
  6. Re: Current & Former JETs - Your best and worst experience as a JET?

    Yeah it was, my bad. I meant specific to being a JET, though while being a JET would be fine too if it was specific to living in Japan.
  7. Current & Former JETs - Your best and worst experience as a JET?

    I know this topic has come up in the past, but I'm curious about what your absolute best and absolute worst experience (with students, JTEs, govt, anything) as a JET was?

    Re: 2016 Applications: Placements Megathread

    Lol. Maybe the litany of colleges in Sendai will have some foreign, non fat-dwarf types. If not, I'm sure CLAIR will let me transfer based on that.

    Re: 2016 Applications: Placements Megathread

    Thanks for the link! I'll be sure to read it over. I didn't request it, but was hoping for a placement exactly like it.

    I'm not sure about why people wouldn't want to be up there (maybe because...

    Re: 2016 Applications: Placements Megathread

    No, unfortunately I haven't. But I've heard a lot about it from friends who've been. Pretty much the best placement for me. Are you in Sendai?

    Re: 2016 Alternates Thread

    ESID strikes before we're even in Japan? You're lucky your consulate lets you know when they've received your docs. Mine doesn't unless there's something wrong with the docs, so I've been tracking my...

    Re: 2016 Alternates Thread

    If I was in your shoes, I would just call them instead of emailing. I don't think it'll be a big deal, just briefly explain the situation and tell them it'll be there on Friday most likely, but if it...

    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2016

    Thanks, Tobio. From looking at last year's thread, it does indeed seem like we'll get the answer on the 22nd. I can only hope it'll be a bit sooner!

    Any recent Canadian JETs recall when exactly in May they received their placement info? Seems to me that all the dates for things like interview notice were the same this year as in the past few...

    Dallas, as someone who was waitlisted for their university program, I can understand your frustration. I agree with others that it is important to keep it real, but there's a crapshoot aspect to any...

    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2016

    Yes, I think any physician will do. My form doesn't specify anything other than "the physician should not be a relative". If still in doubt, give the consulate a ring.

    I recall reading that you go to the consulate/embassy of your home country in Japan and that's where they do everything. In any case, your consulate/embassy will definitely point you in the right...

    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2016

    There's a thought. However, instead of a phone call, I think I'll go ahead and send a profanity-laced email since I prefer to be contacted that way.

    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2016

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I had read differing accounts on how people are informed. Anyways, e-mail works better for me than a phone call or a letter in the mail.
