    To everyone who hasn't received a message yet I have one small but helpful suggestion. Breathe.

    Today, tomorrow, or next week, this is message will come and life will either be awesome or cry into beer worthy and it is entirely beyond your control.

    Alternates: Don't lose heart! I know a lot of JETs that were alternates. I might be one myself!

    miamicoordinator, I wonder if you'd mind taking one more question about alternates? I heard that you can wait all the way up till December or so to be upgraded, but most people know by July. What timeframe are the most people upgraded within? (Just so I know how long I should reasonably hold out for. =p )

    I'm not Miami Coordinator, but I may have a general idea. Alternate upgrades usually come in waves. The first wave will be right about now, when shortlisters have to turn in their reply forms - if somebody declines, an alternate will take their place. The next wave would be in June-ish, when placements go out. If a shortlister doesn't like their placement and declines, then that space is open. The next wave would be right before/right after the JETs depart, if some shortlisters wuss out and go home right before/after going to Japan.

    Of course at any time a shortlister can drop out for any reason, but I think those are the most likely times for alternates to get upgraded.

    Shincantsen is pretty much spot on but there is one more (very slim) upgrade window of early September October. When alts have been in Japan fora bit but hate their positions.

    Sorry I did not get to this earlier. You can imagine how busy it is here right now!

    What Shincantsen and Gizmo said is pretty accurate for the most part.

    Most upgrades happen from April-June. This is when people initially accept/decline for whatever personal reasons they have. They might also not like their placement and drop out after finding out where they are going. Placement notifications usually roll out sometime in June. I would say a good majority of the upgrades happen during the first few months. They do come in waves, as said here.

    The Upgrade window from August to December is definitely smaller, but they do often on a yearly basis. Many people get to Japan, find out they don't like it as much as they thought they would. Maybe they don't like their contracting organization, and just bail. There are many reasons people leave. I had an upgrade here in late November of last year, so they do happen when you would least expect them.

    Of course, since JET applications are due in November/December, many alternates just apply again for the next year anyway since it might be a goal of theirs. The best thing you can do if you are in limbo is work on strengthening your application. Maybe add some teaching experience, volunteers hours, Japanese ability, whatever it may be. Definitely don't sit around and do nothing and appear exactly the same as you were this year.

    There are lots of reasons why someone is on the alternate list, but it basically means that others just scored higher than you during their interviews. You could have been a great candidate, but maybe someone else was just a pinch better and put you under the line.

    Hope this helps.

    I think the whole east coast will get theirs before DC releases their list.
