    My letter said just the reply form and passport photocopy by April 30th, if we get upgraded then we have to send the medical form and police reply. Personally I'm going to send in my reply and copy, then go and apply for the police thing as it can take up to 40 days, but try and hold off on the medical until I know for sure.

    Yep, just got letter through the post.......

    Alternate too pour moi.....

    I was an alternate last year but was never called up......your chances of being called up as an Alternate depend on how high you are on the list and really how many are on the list.

    JET won't tell you this info, so its just a case of being extremely patient I suppose.

    When do you hear back if you're an unsuccesful alternative? Sometime in June or July?

    I think they can upgrade you any time until October, but if you don't make it you just don't get a call, they don't send out letters/email officially telling you to give up.

    I think anyway, unless there is a past alternate here that can say otherwise?

    Alternative is pretty good at this stages guys

    I don't think they even sent me a letter so who knows what I am

    Does this make me the last person in the world to find out?

    I'm sure you'll hear soon! And don't give up hope, people are still finding out they're being accepted. My letter was postmarked the 5th, so it acually WAS a case of mine being ridiculously slow...

    Good luck to all the other alternates, come June I'm gonna start applying to other places. Determined to go somehow!
    failure is just success rounded down, my friend!

    It just arrived

    I'm an alternate as well
    It was either that or rejection so I don't mind.

    I've gotta be honest though, the last week has made me think things through and it's good to have in the background but isn't going to dominate me doing something else.

    Good luck peoples

    Also, I already send 4 copies of my passport... they should recycle!

    Hurrahs to all felow alt. alts!

    My letter had a postmark of 5th April but then again for 10th April from West London; seems they sent it down south first, probably to group with the other alternatives.

    I just wanted to say kudos to the people who have posted to say they were unsuccessful - it helps everyone who was rejected to feel less like they were the only ones.
    I'm still confident I'll be meeting Keekers, Sciby and maybe even good old Natsume in Tokyo.
    But I'll keep my fingers crossed for the rest of you, too!

    Thanks... I'm hoping a lot of us get upgraded. I sent off my reply today. Not bothering with the medical etc unless I hear back, though.

    Been investigating other places, I'm definitely set on heading to Japan, even if I have to go with NOVA!

    Still hoping for JET, but since I've been thinking I was rejected since Saturday, I'm used to the idea of going some other way, and it's not the end of the world.

    Still, let's hope for a phone call :mrgreen:

    Yeah just sent mine off today too

    As I said, a strange part of me is glad that I don't need to panic about medical and police forms this week. Silly me

    So we alternates can send the reply form off WITHOUT the medical?

    Ack! Righto, thanks, I'll get it sent off tomorrow morning.

    It wouldn't affect my standing on their Waiting List Of Doom would it? :P

    In my defence I must have got mixed up with the bit about not needing police clearance till they actually ask for it. D'oh!
