Yes, BoE's should have already received information on new JETs (or, at least, they have in my prefecture).
New JETs should receive notice from consulates soon, or at least before the 31st.
Following that, reply forms are due.
Once the reply forms have been received by the BoE and provided that it is after the 31st, contact can be made.
I could be mistaken, however.
We've got around twenty new JETs coming to Shimane this year, so some of you best prefer yourself for the adventure/rabbit hole that is rural Japan!
That's fantastic that its that many though! Well, I guess for us... ^_^

But other than that, yes, agreed on the "by May 31st" -ness, what my supervisor said as well, for what it counts.

I'm not sure what you mean? I only had one reply form last year, and that was the one I sent in to accept my offer of JET.... I was told there was no second reply form for placement, as the program assumes you said yes and meant it....
The shortlisters are sent out to various COs about the same time that notifications are sent out to applicants. So most COs know the names of the new JETs they want before the reply forms have gotten to Japan.

I'm from neither of those places... guess that means I'm not going to wherever you live in Kumamoto-ken! Narrows it down a bit.

Gah - that'd be fantastic - Hokkaido was my 2nd choice only because I didn't want to seem so apt to want it as badly as I do!! The JET that was at the interview location was placed in Hokkaido and he and I had a great conversation before my interview!!! I want Hokkaido so very badly
