    The anticipation is killing me. Hoping that us in the U.S. hear this week or next week, but I wouldn't get my hopes up so high in case it doesn't happen.

    remember, just because placements go out, it doesn't mean that everyone will actually know where they are going. If you are lucky and get stuck working for a prefecture SHS, you will likely get a mail like Buttfucknowhere-ken, buttfucknowhere, rather than buttfucknowhere-ken,morebuttfucknowhere-shi,irrelevent-inbred-inaka-jhs-4

    I'm looking forward to finding out what the equivalent of Toadsuck, Arkansas is. An actual town, in case you didn't know.

    My actual placement request. I crunched the odds, and it seems like they should have 10 slots, and 18 placement requests-ish.

    Fingers crossed?

    As a district rep in an area with awful people, I'm eagerly trolling this thread to see if you're worth my time when you get here.

    There should be about 30ish slots open this year for ALTs, don't know why anyone would want to come to Tottori though.

    If the statistics that CLAIR push out every year, then it'll be around 50-100. There's already supposedly 200 JET ALTs in Tokyo, with 1/4 leaving after one year, and they're still adding more IIRC.

    It's in the neighborhood of 100, give or take a little.
