    As long as it's an abbreviation that the reader would obviously know, such as UN for United Nations (or ALT in this case), then it's ok.

    Coop, even when the reader knows the abbreviation, it's always good form to list it out and then put it in brackets afterwords. It shows an attention to detail and clarity.

    ...no. The people that would be most beneficial to looking over an SOP did not have a "long weekend", unless they had taken a vacation day or something.


    On a related note, I didn't realize how close the American cutoff date is. Anyone who wanted me to go over an SOP, just shoot me a PM with the request again. I don't have classes the rest of today or tomorrow, so I can do a quick turnaround.

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but the E in JET stands for Exchange.

    For those of you still writing SOPs, please make sure you didn't write "Japan and English Teaching Program."

    Hello! I am pretty new to this forum and looking for some SOP assistance. I would just PM someone, but I figured I had to put myself out there at least a little to have someone consider it. I have already had a friend well versed in English and teaching abroad look it over, but I would feel more confident if someone that is(was) a JET could give me some pointers as well.

    This must be the most annoying time of year for the seasoned posters. It's like no one can read a FAQ.

    I think I'm starting to feel the pressure finally. If the app has to be in by the 21st I'll want to mail it by Friday at the latest. Thinking it might be time to start writing this damn thing...

    I'm just about done with my SoP and was wondering if one of you would mind reading it. I would really appreciate feedback. Thank you!

    Hahaha good luck! I started mine in early October and I have just gotten to the point where I was satisfied with it! I have edited, revised, rewritten, edited again, and completely started over at least 10 times!

    Could someone check my personal statement? I am aware that I only have one post and just registered. I am aware that this is not often done for folks such as myself. However, I assure you I am awesome and deserve it, yes, for no other reason than I said so.

    I can also beg or offer sexual favors if necessary. I am on the East Coast. Send a PM and we can meet up, if necessary.

    Hey, anyone on here able to proof-read my SoP I've had a few people look at it... but it'd be cool to have a current/former JET have a look, too!

    I am for the UK programme, but I'm not particular who looks.
