My husband and I both applied to the JET Program this year with the hopes that at least one of us would get in. I tried not to think of what would happen if we both got put onto the alternate list, it's like putting your life on hold. But naturally the result that I was hoping for the least is what came to pass.
So now we have a whole year (or maybe less) of waiting to hear back from JET that one of us is needed, it didn't happen last year so I'm not holding my breath. I'm wondering if we are just not what they are looking for, that seems likely. But maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, expect for the worst and hope for the best.
