    I got here just

    When you say "get" "some place", does "get" mean "arrive"?

    ex)I got here just before. I got there after 2.

    Re: I got here just

    Yes.

    PS: IMO, "I got here just before" is incomplete. You would need to add before who or what you arrived.

    "I got here just before" can work.

    "Did you arrive at exactly 2pm?"
    "I got here just before."
