    Did you get your letter? I'm in Dunedin so won't get mine until tomorrow (hopefully) but we are getting emails tomorrow too apparently.

    I emailed the consulate yesterday and asked if they could email my results earlier, and they did! I got too impatient! Good luck!

    I know some people that were ALTs in Sendai a few years ago. They blogged about it at allyourstarsareout.blogspot.com you'll have to go back a bit for the JET stuff, but it's quite good

    I heard someone in Auckland turned down their Shortlist as they got offered a Full time position somewhere. Maybe an Alternate from NZ might get upgraded. never know, dont give up bro

    Cheers man! Unfortunately, I'll only get upgraded when people in Wellington deny their position. I haven't lost hope tho!

    Shortlisted, did my interview in Auckland. I have already sent away my reply form, now the big wait for the placement details.
    My choices were Kumamoto City, Hyogo and Kyoto, I wanted to go somewhere in the south of Japan because I have already lived in the north. Really hoping for Kyushu though.

    Good luck to other Kiwi JETs

    A bunch of spots are opening around Fukuoka and Saga. Hopefully I see you around!

    Congrats for being shortlisted! I just had my chest x-ray today (clear of TB, phew!), and tomorrow will hand in my reply forms after work :-)

    My placement preferences were for Kyoto City (with full knowledge that I would pretty unlikely to get it), Fukuoka and Kobe. Good luck for your placement!

    Nice, I did all my medical stuff last week and the consulate got my reply letter today!, now I just need to renew my passport.

    Yeah same idea for me with Kyoto, I love the city but I don't think there is a chance to get it. Actually we have quite similar requests haha, Good luck!
