    You'll be fine. I know of 9 ALTs from my consulate who got accepted who were homosexual, transgender people of mixed-Asian descent with several dependents who (including the ALTs) all had grave health issues and psychiatric conditions.

    They're all doing well.

    Yeah, being an adult, or at least pretending to be one is a good way to score points in the interview. A lot of people seem to overlook that.

    Why do you think that?

    I got the same question and answered roughly the same way. I'd actually be really surprised if anyone answered a work question like that with anything other than that they'd do what their supervisor asks of them.

    I was just talking about a childish attitude toward JET applications and interviews that is pretty common.

    There are a lot of JET applicants for whom JET is a first 'real' job. Or at least a first 'real' interview/application process. And fast food/gas station attendant interviews don't count...

    I think you're looking way to into this Mike. It's only a job, they have a set number of positions to fill. Don't take it personal, if it was a medication thing you wouldn't have been chosen for interview, JET wouldn't waste time and money on a candidate they didn't see fit.
