Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

Sorry to hear that no-one else has been selected.
There's many more ways to go to Japan, so don't lose your motivation!
I'll definitely write a blog, so you can look forward to that!

Re: I broke the main thread with a polish character

Alright guys I fixed the main thread.
Funny how I managed to do it.

I grabbed the URL of the "edit" button, and did a sweep over the post ID numbers until I hit the one of my broken post.
Let the posting continue!

I broke the main thread with a polish character

Guys, I tried to reference Paweł, a new user, in a post in the main tread, and made it crash due to a probably unsupported Polish character in his name.

I call the admins to fix the post :lol:

There could be many reasons. Some that I think of:

- they are busy with other stuff xD

Re: Advice on other options or programmes

It's not exactly cheap, but nothing compared to the US! Check at the Japanese embassy website of your country for funding opti...

Re: Advice on other options or programmes

Joining a graduate school is probably one of the best ways to get in. Universities in Japan are eager to get more international students, so there is plenty of opportunity there. The top 5 or so are quite competitive to get in, but anything else should be quite feasible. You could do either a master...

What I'm guessing happened is that they sent our portfolios through mail a couple days back, and they tell us once some time passed and all companies have received them.
