    Default JETs -when did you hear news of your placement?

    This came up recently when I was chatting with some other JETs the other day...
    I was under the impression that accepted applicants got their placements around the same time. But I was surprised to find out how much it varied.... (or maybe the JETs I was talking to just had bad memories)

    Either way,
    these might be interesting stats for newcomers awaiting placement.

    name / interview or departure embassy / when you got your placement / where?*


    * obviously, don't include any info you don't want to give away

    For name/embassy/where you can look at the placement threads from 2009 and 2008. Generally placement info starts coming out at the end of May and continues into June.

    yes, but I'd be too lazy to go look.

    And I'm wondering if certain embassies/countries are generally faster....

    How are people supposed to remember something as insignificant as that?
    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.

    Brits all find out at the same time unless you an alternate in which case youmight have to wait longer. Got mine towards the end of May. Don`t remember the exact date.

    It was a sunny day though. Nice.

    When I applied before I got my packet on May 27th as well (from NY) (2008) Then I sent it back unopened so I have no idea where I was placed.
