    Japan doesn't care that it's unfair. You don't need your diploma, just proof of graduation. You can't get your visa without it.

    So I'd get to it if I were some of you. Just throwing in my advice.
    Not really "level of dedication", more like Tokyo covering their arses to fill positions asap when some of the new JETs go AWOL when they see where they are staying. I have been advised the turn around from upgrades to arrival is quite tight timewise so it is an advantage to have as much paper work submitted as possible.
