In the La Comedia Divina, Dante describes Limbo and Puratory. I can't decide which I just found myself in.
To get to the point, I heard back from JET. Here is what they had to say:
Dear Mr. McManus,
This letter is to inform you that you have been selected as an
ALTERNATE ALT short-list candidate for this year's JET Program.
Huh? Should I be happy, or should I prepare for things to get messy?
