    Don't get people like this - don't you have jobs/lives that preclude you from posting stupid "comments" on here?

    You don't use forums often, do you?

    So, let's *assess*.

    You applied about 1.5-2 years ago, and you were supposed to have graduated at around the same time. Fast forward and you haven't graduated.

    Sounds like an ideal candidate to me.

    Also, you failed to apply the 'Interwebz generic kindness filter' to those posts above while you *assessed*. You were given generic 'go ahead and reapply, ganbatte'-style advice by people who have NO CLUE WHO YOU ARE.

    The fact that I have no graduated ( but wi in December) is one of the main reasons I am wary of applying. There are so many qualified people, thousands, who could be more qualified than me. To this end I would assume I have to have a killer SOP and references. Any other advise besides I'm totally f'd

    Your graduation date is fine; lots of applicants will be graduating long after you and will still be accepted.

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    If you're concerned, don't apply and relieve the people in charge a headache from your (decidedly moronic) indecisiveness.

    Seriously? It's a fcking application--just do the gd thing and what comes will come. In the meantime stop asking people on the internet (experts, all of us) what you should do and do something useful for your application.

    You know by now that all you need is a degree--most new JETs have just graduated the April/May before they come, I really don't understand why graduating in December is a thing.

    Well because I should have graduated in 2009 or 2010 and here it's the end of 2012 and I still haven't graduated. I'm wondering if they'll look at it and be like "WTF, no way"

    Only if the only thing you can say about the period is: soooo ya. I spent the last three years wallowing in my own filth while being high as a skunk and wanking to child porn.
