Applications have been open since April 1st and I believe you can go as late as July 1st.

Still apply, the only drawback is you might not get your city of choice. (I applied super late, and i still got in...and now am currently in Ulsan, Korea) it seems as there are always open spots  with EPIK.

Thanks kiekie87, that was going to be my next question. What are my options now? Do you think if I can send everything off by this Sunday it would still be ok? I don't want Seoul but I do want one of the other seven major cities, are chances of that gone?

I have to tell me school if I am staying or not before June so I have to make all the decisions this week. Anyone got advice, I am starting to stress. Should I have my school recommendation (reference letter) before I apply?

From the looks of it, there are still a lot of people being interviewed and getting all their documents together. I'm apart of a forum where there are tons of people still waiting to hear if they've even been approved. There are a few people still waiting to be interviewed so I think you still have time. For reference letters, I would get them as soon as possible. I asked my vice principal a month ago and still have yet to get it back, but I asked someone else so I'm all set. My motto is always the earlier the better.

I applied around this time last year and got an e-mail from them saying I had little chance of getting one of the cities and that i should think about applying for Seoul (I have teaching experience). I applied for Seoul, got a place and I love it here!

Hey,

I'm in the same boat I"m waiting on my reference letters to get the interview!!

I'm passed the point of merely being anxious, can anyone tell me how soon after their interview did they know as well as when did they have to leave?

Also i'm applying through an accredited agency in S.A will this improve my chances?

Thanks

think seoul use SMOE?

and with regards to applying for jobs - i came mid january, applied in November..... i was lucky to find a school that needed a teacher at such a random time, but it shows that not all jobs get filled with the august and march in-takes....

The Gangnam school district tends to hire separately from EPIK or SMOE. However, they are more exclusive and you have to be on a sharp look out on job boards.
