    Ah, something to pass the time (and a five minute distraction from my thesis)

    I'd like to say April 3rd, because that's hubby's b'day; but that's a Friday and we all just know that you'll have to pass the longest weekend in the history of time before you get your results.
    The only good news is that the time that passes doesn't change the result, so you may as well pass it pleasurably.

    I'm going to say the third, this of course is my hopeful answer. Maybe they will release them on a Friday after hours so that no one will be there for the flood of calls from people who don't get accepted and those who do. If I was them that's what I would do. It must be a frighting time!

    Ah, I'm going to have to disagree with this one, not out of a sense of bushy-tailed optimism but because of past years, all of which have been announced before April 8, if I'm not mistaken.

    The New York consulate said that we would get email notification by April 10 at the latest. I'm being slightly pessimistic and sticking with that date. That was if it's earlier I'll be surprised, if it's on time for what they told me I won't be too upset, and if it's later I won't start really worrying until the 15th or so. I'll just do my best to follow Wicket's advice until then (not going to be too hard as I'll be in Kyoto in a few days).

    But secretly, I'm hoping for the emails and letters to go out in the first few days of April.

    Early on several people were told April 10, so I think probably some time around the 14th.

    i definitely hope so, but id rather be wrong and have it early than be wrong and have it late!

    so for those of you where were accepted last year/previous years, how long after being accepted did you find out where you'd actually be going?

    From what I understand they get told by mid-May... but for some reason prefectural JETs were told like a week before they left (ie. mid-july)?

    Thinking about placement already, eh?

    I just want to get accepted first!

    At the DC embassy they gave us a FAQ sheet and it says "You will be notified of your status, via email, in early April, by April 10th at the latest."
    So I voted for the 9th. They barely made the deadline for interview annoucements so I figure it will be the same for acceptance.

    well im not really "thinking" about it, i was just curious. i had read it was about a month on average, but wasnt sure if certain groups found out much earlier or later than that, depending on location or whatever

    I was told on or before April 10th by the consulate.
    I got my Alternate email last year on the 3rd.

    No idea for this year.

    I'd actually rather be wrong and have it late, I need time to prepare for the rejection. If I suddenly had a rejection E-mail today it would be pretty hard. Though at least I'd get more time to find another job, but still.

    I'm trying to be cautiously optimistic about it but I keep picking my interview responses to pieces, mostly on stuff I didn't say than what I did say, I jus thope what I did say was enough. At least I didn't say anything "wrong" though
