Oh, my hopes went up again, since I passed but have yet to be invited.

But alas, still no email this time around either. :( But congrats!

I just an audition invite to Charleston, SC for late October! I'm really happy about this because I'll be overseas when the tests take place earlier in October. Can't wait!!!

Here's my timing:

Online test: January 27
Audition email: May 18
Audition in NYC: June 26
"The Call": August 1 (missed it; finally connected on August 4th)
Taping: August 31
Air date: Thursday, December 15
Withstanding the barrage of "HOW DID YOU DO?!?!" questions: August 31-present

This was the second time I took the online test and my second audition. I feel pretty fortunate to have gotten on so quickly!

Liltbo, do you know if it's just one session? I'm scheduled for 9am but wouldn't mind an hour or two later.

Honestly not sure? My invite is also for 9am, and it's supposed to last 2-2.5 hours? So if there is a second session, I imagine it would be in the afternoon. After (what seems like) 10 years of online tests, this is my first audition, so I'm a total newbie!

I've also been invited to audition in Charleston!

I'm at 11:30, so there must be at least two groups that day.

Online Test in January 2016
Audition Email in mid-June 2016
Audition in Las Vegas-July 16, 2016
"The Call"--July 25, 2016 (I assumed it must be an obvious mistake of some sort)

Air Date: Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016.

n.b. It's been an exceedingly wild and busy summer, and loads of fun.

I love that I read this, felt happy for you, thought about congratulating you on FB, then remembered that I had already seen your FB post on this subject several hours ago. The ol' brain is a bit slow sometimes.

Congratulations! May this be *your* season.

Congrats! Best of luck to you in November!

With this new online test ending this week, I realized that emails were never sent out for LA from the online test from January (unless I missed that conversation). Are there any ideas/thoughts to whether the LA emails will be sent out based on the results of the January test or the October test? It would be slightly annoying to have selected LA as my audition city for January, pass the test, only to have them never use LA for that cycle and then send out invites to LA based on the results of this October test (which I bombed spectacularly) :|
