Thread: T Minus one week until we start finding out

    Default Re: T Minus one week until we start finding out

    Think of it this way: we can still dream a little and hope a little for the next week or two. Some of us are bound to be disappointed when results come out, but before we know for sure what they are we all still have the potential to be at Tokyo Orientation in August.

    I will say I am so tired of people asking if I've heard yet. It's like those relatives always asking when you're getting married or popping out a kid. Blargh!

    For some reason I feel incredibly confident. I wish everybody the best of luck and remember, when god closes a door he opens a window...

    Just wait: if you're successful and make it out here, you'll get to deal with people asking you when you're coming back!
    ...because Japan.

    I never understood that idiom. Is the door and window connected somehow so that when one closes one opens?

    In either case, I can't wait to hear back good news this week!

I'll be travelling as a single parent of a 5 year old if selected, so I would live to be close to family and friends in Japan for support. There will be a lot of difficult planning and stress either way, and I am so chomping at the bit to start crossing things off my to do list (plan b is to go for a few months, instead of working there, so I'm anxious to know one way or the other!!)

    I can't imagine having a 5 year old child, applying for JET, having to wait for results, and then have acceptance be contingent on how close the random place where you'll be placed is to your family and friends. That's... I hope God or some divine intervention happens so that it'll be successful for you!

    @kbui - it is nerve-wracking!!! But at least I know that the prefecture my husbands parents are in is both central (so hoping for at least weekend visits) and one of the most JET populated. Still, I'm crossing everything I've got! I heard a rumour though that most second time JETs get sent to Fukushima. A great place, but not for a 5year old (perhaps)!

    That's a totally unjustified rumor. 2nd time jets go all over the place.

    People on the JET facebook group out of the Detroit consulate are starting to get emails. Good luck to anyone from there, check your inbox!

    Everyone should hear from their Consulate by the end of the week. Be patient people.
    Rest assured you will receive an e-mail, whether its good news or bad news, thats a different story.

    If you haven't heard from your Consulate yet, it just means they haven't gotten around to it.

    Based on the Facebook posts, Miami and Detroit notifications have gone out. Anyone hear anything else from a different location?
