JET Program Timeline (2013 and 2014)

Hello everyone! I figured that, since I put my Interac timeline up, I may as well do the same with my JET Program timeline. I hope someone finds this helpful! (Please, please let me know if you do in the comments! It’ll give me some motivation to continue writing and providing soon-to-be-ALTs with any information I can.)

So, a little bit of background if you don’t already know my story: I applied for JET twice. Once in New York and once in DC. I was accepted into the program both times, and I turned it down both times. (Why would you do that? I can already hear you asking. But that’s a story for a different blog post.) Because of this, though, I can only provide a small portion of the timeline.

And, because I applied at two different consulates, I can’t really compare the slight yearly differences. Use this information as you may!
