Oh, this is nice. They updated the placement list (and they added some more placements), but the deadline is over :)

I think today would be still ok to send, its the "latest possible postmark date", even though if website says "passed", the official is the paper we sent.

airdawg, I think there have been a few cases in the past where a company just decided to not go with anyone but I can't imagine it happening a lot... At least I read that somewhere, don't ask me where ^^ I HOPE that every field in that excel sheet will be filled with a nice placement but 43? That almost seems to good to be true so I dare not believe it. I guess if they are not announcing it yet, they probably do not have the exact info yet so it might be less OR more (oh, please). Handing in the application felt like giving someone my firstborn...

Are we at 43 placements now?
Do you think the number will grow even more? O.o
Last year did they fill up all placements, or there is the risk that some company just won't take anyone despite EU-Japan sending them even a second round of applications?

I rememeber reading the same somewhere around or on the former forums. I'm also inclined to think some of the companies might not choose anyone. On the other hand, the japanese companies, unlike us, have until the end of this month to apply, so the list may grow.

Did you talk about the placement list ?
Companies can apply until 31st January, so there could be others.

Indeed. I think it'll take at least one more week to compile the entire list.

Yeah, but what I say is that I doubt that they will update the list regardless of new companies or similar ... by the way, right now the list cannot be accessed. So I guess that they deleted it.

I don't know if you gave me the moderator superpowers on purpose, but I've just used to split this posts from the welcome thread since they're not about welcoming people and are enough to deserve their own place.

Please continue the discussion here :-)

So then... are we expecting a new placement list from tomorrow onwards to drool over till the shortlist comes out?
Also, I think this topic needs this

Has anybody else not been able to open the placement list for a few days? "Page can't be found" is the only thing I get... :/ Then again, I should probably stop checking it every other day, hehe

As I understand the placement list has been offline for some time already, maybe there was some problem on the companies side, as they didn't want their placements to be so public etc. We have to wait until the shortlisting process has ended and the final list is given.

Hi!

Can you share the most recent version of the file? The last file I could download had only 8 placements and I'm curious... Thank you!

I think that since the "public shortlist" was not useful anymore they just took it down, to focus on the private one.

Probably, I was just curious to see what else did they add to this list. I already got it from reteka.

Thanks!
