    Also glad to see that I'm not the only ITIL member representing Tampa.

    Last year they accepted all of 28 people from all of Florida into JET - I'm curious how many applied/interviewed.

    Hopefully they'll allow more this year - otherwise we're applying for the same job!

    What were your prefecture choices?

    Well if thats the case, then I challenge you to... MORTAL KOMBAT!!! (Insert KMFDM theme song)

    I chose Suburban/Small City for the following:
    1) Kyushu - Fukuoka
    2) Shikoku - Ehime
    3) Hokkaido
