For those interested in Kansai Gaidai's program: Whether you apply for early admission or not, do not count on them contacting you by the date given or within that 3-week period. I say this because I was given the date April 16, and it is May 12. When I asked previous participants, they cannot remember whether they had this issue or not. So hopefully this advice keeps anybody else from panicking.

And the countdown to my adventure begins...

*UPDATE* I did get my email May 15

One more tip for future applicants: If you decide to take your own picture for the application, SAVE IT TO YOUR COMPUTER for your visa lol You don't know how many times I've had to take that picture (10 pics for KG, 2 pics for Sophia, 2 pics for visa, 1 pic for ISIC card). And print them at Wal*Mart or any other place with Kodak print stations... trust me it's cheaper then getting passport photos taken (I think it's like 2 for 10$ at WalGreens)
