  2. Re: Discrepancy between Self-Assessment Medical Form and CoH

    It is never too late for CLAIR/Tokyo to disqualify someone. There are many times when people have been DQ'd right before departure because of medical/criminal/other reasons.

    I agree that this...

    Re: 2015 JET Alternates Thread

    I can confirm that upgrades DO NOT work this way. THose who get their paperwork in faster do not have a higher chance of being upgraded. If you let the deadline pass however, that is another story.

    Re: Married before JET Program?

    There are no consequences to turning down a position on JET as long as you have not found out your placement information (sometime in May). If you turn it down now, you can apply again next year...

    Zolrak is 100% correct in his explanation.

    Also, we refrain from giving exact spots on the alternate list because in the long run, it means very little. Sure, you could be the next person on the...

    Re: 2015 JET Alternates Thread

    Alternates for both CIRs and ALTs are upgraded based on need. There is no soft cap. If 30 cir shortlisters drop out, they will upgrade 30 cir alternates. If 6-7 people are usually upgraded in the uk,...

    Re: 2015 JET Alternates Thread

    To be brutally honest, since there are so few CIRs that are sent every year, the chances of a CIR upgrade are low. ALTs have a large pool of people that can drop out so upgrades are frequent. CIRs...
