Group 2 is now closed! If you are still interested in Group 2, you can request being placed on the waiting list in the event a spot(s) opens up.

Group 3, maybe 1-2 "seats" open.

Group 1 still has plenty of room, 5 "seats" are still available!

Great news, still a few "seats" open in Group 1.
Group 2 and 3 are filled. If interested in being on a waiting list, please email your interest to me. (I think in 17 OTTI and 2 NOTTI rounds, only one participant was a "no show" ... but you never know.

EDIT: I made a mistake regarding which two groups are filled. I have corrected this above. Group 1 has seats available. Groups 2 and 3 are filled up.

Chip,
In the last few OTTIs, which shipping option have you used to send out domestic packages? I ask because I found the shipping times quite reasonable. So, if that was Standard, I really don't see any reason to upgrade to priority. Unless you would advise otherwise... :?:

If it was an OTTI, I have shipped it first class parcel which can be almost as fast as Priority. If it was NOTTI, then it was Priority.

Since this is Shincha and it is 12 samples and you are 3000 miles away, it might be worth going Priority. If not now, when? :mrgreen:

Packages being shipped from Japan for this round are being shipped EMS, 3-4-5 days from Japan to here. Weeeeeeee ...

Yeah, EMS from Japan is the best overseas shipping I've encountered. Too bad it's expensive.

Out of curiosity, how many offerings are we still waiting on to get in from Japan?
