Thread: PLACEMENTS!!! 2015 General Placements Thread

    Default PLACEMENTS!!! 2015 General Placements Thread

    Hey all. Now that everyone is shitting their pants and blowing their brains out over placement announcements being imminent, an official thread might be nice.

    Shout out your placement once you get one. Lets try and keep the placement talk here until we can split to area specific things (if that is even necessary). It may be fun to take note whether or not you got a request of yours. Did you get your first, second, or third request?

    also, some would want to try and get in touch with consulate friends, so if you feel like it, post your departure location too.

    If I learn how to edit on a regular basis, I might even make a list and junk right here at the top as we go.

    The triple exclamation marks are mocking me as I wait for my placement information. Mocking me.

    Also could we please add Consulate information in brackets too?

    Mie
    I'm so excited~~ It was my first choice.
    My CO is Taiki-based, so i would assume that i'll be living/working in and or around the Taiki area.

    I'm not in the middle of Tokyo, so it doesn't seem that bad. I've been looking at prices online. I might be living in a one-room apartment, but I'll survive.

    I got a school name. I Googled where the school is.

    I figure, since we probably don't have predecessors, and there probably isn't housing offered by our school, we can always live further away from our schools and commute if it makes it cheaper. A lot of research to be done before departure. This was literally the last placement I was expecting.
