    I just hit refresh on the application website (https://app.applyyourself.com/?id=jet), and it had the "create account" button now.

    I'm stuck on the Academic Specialization section, great. I don't know whether English Literature goes under "Other Humanities" or "Other Major."

    I'm already confused on if I should answer questions like 2b to avoid blanks on the application.

    I have a B.A. in English, which I'm assuming will be "Literature" under "Humanities"?? I'm not 100% sure, tho.

    ^^Yeah, I saw Literature but the way they set it up is really confusing.

    Also, it keeps saying I left dates blank for the teaching cert/TEFL questions but I said no to both, and it won't let me put in N/A for them either.

    Yeah, I was kind of unsure about those too. But I'm guessing, if we didn't answered the related preceding question, then we don't answer it?

    I'm stuck on the Accompaniment part. I'm Engaged to someone already in the JET Program and I'm hoping I can be placed in the same city as him. Should I answer all the questions like he was also Applying? I have no idea.

    Should I use the same email or not? I know if you use the old one it will recognize it and make you come up with a new password. Is using the same email how JET knows you applied last year or is there a specific question for that (I can't remember)?

    Yeah, the set up in that tab pull down was very odd.

    Strange about the TEFL things, I haven't quite gotten there yet. I'll let you know if the same issue occurs for me.

    ETA: Just hit save and continue, and it doesn't mention anything about it being blank (I also put no for both)...

    You can use the same email, but not the same password. When I was setting up my account just now it said "Duplicate Account" and asked if I wanted to proceed. I said "yes." I got a new pin from last year.

    And there is a specific question that will ask you if you're reapplying if I recall correctly from the application last year.

    Ok cool. I will just use a new email then. I don't use the old one much anymore.

    I think that if any information that they consider crucial is missing, it will prompt you. So I think it's totally fine to leave 2b blank. For everything else, I will put N/A if possible.

    Yeah, once I moved from the page after that one, the notice went away. Hopefully that means I'm OK...

    Yeah, its weird though, because it forced me to answer question 9c even though I answer No to all of the above.

    .... Oh well. x_x

    Actually, its firing off a lot of annoying warnings... I don't have a TEFL certificate, why do you keep telling me I have to fill it out?

    For the Placement section, since my first choice is Sapporo, the I fill out the "Place Name" section with one of the wards or just repeat Sapporo?

    Argh, now the full name of my major doesn't fit in the box!

    I'm getting the same annoying TEFL warnings. I tried N/A and 00/0000 but it yelled at me for my month starting with a 0

    Good question. Sapporo is also my first choice, so I chose "Sapporo City", but I wan't sure if I had to put Sapporo down as the Place Name, or I was supposed to get more specific within Sapporo...
