    Sorry, to clarify; it was a JET staffer on the official forums who thought it would be a good idea. I can understand why it wouldn't.

    Re: 2009 Upgrades

    I did hear that some do that over the winter, and I recall someone (I think on the other forum) mentioning that they hope someday you'll be able to be upgraded anytime during the year because of that.

    There are threads about this, and actually there's an entire other forum for it- non-JET teaching. But I picked JET for a reason, so I never considered any others.

    A B.A. in Asian Studies, which was probably dumb of me since a) it's from Wheaton, which has a crap program and b) it's likely only nominally useful, especially without fluency in Japanese or...
  9. Re: If it does not happen this year, then what alternates?

    I might stick with it through December, but I'm not sure if I even want to be upgraded anymore. I'm okay with the idea of staying here, living at home since the situation there's gotten better,...

    Re: Official Alternate Thread

    I really do wish I could at least get a full-time job so that I could have SOMETHING to tell people aside from "well, I'm trying to go to Japan, and I'm also applying for stuff"

    Re: Official Upgrades Thread 2009

    Wish I could hope for more upgrades before my grad party this weekend. It's going to suck having to repeat "I might be going to Japan, but I'm not sure..." to every family member who asks. :|

    Seconding/thirding/whatevering this. Everyone I've told about the second wave of upgrades and why they'll happen is like "...wait, what?"- especially because they know I'd go anywhere they put me.
