Getting these documents to Korea has been an ordeal and a half. After gathering all of the documents, checking and double checking that everything was right, and preparing myself to drop a ridiculous amount of cash (seeing most people quoted $70-$85 as the cost), I was finally ready to head off to Fedex. First of all, considering that I live in a major city, it should not have been as difficult as it was to find an actual Fedex in my neighborhood. Secondly, I realized that sometimes, being obsessive is a good thing.
The first “fedex” that I went to was in some shady warehouse and actually wasn’t a Fedex at all, but a place with fedex envelopes and a drop box. Why did they try to convince me that shipping would cost $110!!! Ummm, no ma’am.
Then my friends tried to convince me to use the international shipping from the U.S. postal service. As we stood in line at the posting office, I had this gnawing feeling that it was a bad idea. even though it would only cost about $45. Right away, I starting googling from my phone “Epik applications and usps”. And surely enough, warning after warning appeared with horror stories of documents not arriving to Korea until months later. Ummm, definitely no! Needless to say I got out of there, quick.
Lastly, I tried another Fedex that was on a college campus not too far from my house. And they told me it would be $55 and take two days to ship! I grabbed that form so quick. Afterward, I felt a sense of relief knowing that my docs were on there way to Korea and into the hands of Epik.
As soon as I got home, I got a little obsessive about tracking the package. My roommates thought I was being ridiculous. But good thing I did. The next, day, right after I got a notice that the package went through Incheon, I got another notice blinking red saying it was intercepted because of a damaged address label!!!
Why is this my life…

Anonymous asked: hi, first I'd like to say congratulations on passing your interview :] next, I'd like to ask if you know when the deadline for applying to EPIK, GEPIK and etc is? for whatever reason, I am having a really hard time finding it online. thanks!
Hi. Well there is no exact “deadline” necessarily. The EPIK/GEPIK program will continue interviewing candidates until all of the positions are filled. The general timeline is April/May interviews, and if you pass, hopefully receiving your Notice of Appointment from a Metropolitan or Provincial Office of Education in June/mid-July. But I would say get your documents together and apply asap. Good Luck!
