Thread: US Application deadline extended

  1. #1

    Default US Application deadline extended

    The official US JET Program website says that the application deadline has been extended to December 3rd, so you get a full week extra to worry about it/mail it in!

    As soon as I saw the email, I had the sudden urge to not write my SoP tonight like I planned to. No, dangit...I need to be responsible!‚Äč >.o

    I got that email at the same time I got my application confirmation card. Not that it really would have mattered. I'm glad the rest of you guys have more time. Especially those waiting on references.

    I'm curious though too. I thought the deadline was pretty set in stone, no exceptions. I wonder what made them decide to push it back? Has this happened in previous years?

    My best guess would be that the technical problems they experienced when first making the application available in October led them to extend the deadline. Easier to extend the deadline than to have people whinging about it. I'm not complaining- now I don't have to berate my last reference to get with the program already.

    Yeah, it's happened before when the initial release was late/there were technical problems.

    Wow, that's a rather significant policy change, as they traditionally have hired local and through contract companies, given how spectacularly easy (and cheap) it is to get foreigners in Tokyo proper.

    I highly doubt that the delay in the american application has any relation though. If it did, all embassies would have a similar policy change, as once the paper applications have moved to interviews the process is pretty standard across the globe (It's now running on Japan's schedule rather than embassy schedule)

    Unsourced bullsh*t. What good will improving the English abilities of teachers and students starting next year do for an event that will happen in 7 years? 6 years to turn things around? What percentage of the population would be able to 'speak English' after that period?

    Wow that's great news they need more JETS. Especially the number for 2015 (because that's when I'll be applying).
