    Re: CIR Applicants 2014

    You don't need JLPT to apply for a CIR position. Having that concrete proof of level would be helpful but they will be able to gauge your level during interview. However I absolutely would not...

    Re: "Upgrades" to CIR?

    It does happen, but applying for a ALT position purely in the hope of being able to switch to CIR is a bad idea. These kind of "switch" positions are only open in a few prefectures, and you have to...
  4. Re: Did any JETs get their degree JUST before their departure?

    Do you mean graduating on July 20th? Or just finishing your last classes then?

    I graduated on July 14th (though I finished my degree in June), but in the UK at least JET accepted an official...

    Re: Aspiring UK 2015 JETs

    As far as I remember last year there was a different deadline for the different forms. I think it was like a month or so for most of them, and like 2 months for the health form. It can be a bit of a...

    Re: Aspiring UK 2015 JETs

    I got mine on April 4th last year! And I think they were posted April 3rd so some people got them then.
    Unfortunately the UK does seem to take a little longer than America usually. I feel your pain!
