My friend who is already in JET said that she didn't think they would somewhat notify people in this way, but to check here on the forums to see if anyone else had more insight.

The deadline to submit the FBI background checks to Tokyo was moved up this year, and in order to actually get those in on time, some of us are starting to notify applicants that they should get their documentation together.
This is not necessarily an indication that you will or will not be accepted. If your coordinator told you to go ahead with the process of getting your FBI background check, it's a good idea to submit the application (make sure you save a photocopy of the application to send in to your coordinator in the event that you are accepted as a short list or alternate candidate). If you did not receive word about it, you can wait to hear from your coordinator (some are holding off in order to only tell those applicants who were accepted, although this does make it tight to get the background checks in on time) or you can contact your coordinator to see whether or not you should start the process.

Does this mean every interview applicant should have gotten emails saying they should start the FBI check, etc. now?
