Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), April 14, 2015

Just took this via the video. Score 43. Very easy test. What I got wrong: 1. blank but i would have guessed Highlander instead of Outlander and this is nothing I know about. 13. Chaplin which I knew was wrong but at least not blank 23. Much Ado About Nothing which I thought was too long to ask a mil...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 16, 2015

This is my experience too (except I think it was even more than two thirds). *nod* For all the "old-style" auditions I attended, rarely did more than 10% get to stay. The one old-style I went to, out of a room of ~100, exactly -four- stayed for round 2. At some point in history there was no online ...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 16, 2015

Is the test they give at the audition comparable to the one they give on-line? In the 4 times I've taken the Online test, I've gotten 38 to 43 or so. I'd have to look it up. Did similar in timed online practice tests. In the 1 time I took the written test at the audition, I got 49. The written test...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 16, 2015

Is the test they give at the audition comparable to the one they give on-line? I've heard that the in-person audition one is far easier and that lately very few have "failed" it (at least to the point that very few have been told "we've reviewed your test results and Horace, you are the weakest lin...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 16, 2015

Just so we're clear on this- as long as your score meets a certain passing threshold, you are given equal consideration with all others who pass, right? So if Alice gets 40 and Bob gets 45 and the passing threshold is 38, Alice and Bob both have an equal shot at an audition? This is the impression ...

Tyrrhenian Sea lies to the east of Sardinia and touches about half of the island's coast. It is part of the Mediterranean Sea, which touches all of Sardinia.

Unless your second guess is right. I think I had a few that I corrected, correctly. I type quickly.

I got 38. I've passed every online test I've taken. Out of 3 prior times I got one audition email. My short/similar answers that I think are right 4) Denali and McKinley are the same. 13) FYI.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 16, 2015

I got a 38 on no sleep. Easy test. Shoulda got a lot higher.

38's a pass right?

I'm sure I did better than that last time but never got the audition call.

The worst part is waiting for the questions to be posted on J-Board.

I'm wicked tired. Didn't do my best but I think I may have >35. I thought it was pretty easy.

I'm also excellent at moving on to the next clue so I have zero recall of what the clues were.

You and I have different definitions of "ace."
Ace means to do very well with ease.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I went to only one audition and I found the written test to be not terribly hard. I aced it with something like a 49. Never got on the show probably for lack of a charming telegenic persona (or at least for being more of the same that see plenty of, demographically and temperamentally. I shoulda pla...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I was really surprised to see my thread from a year ago on the first page of the jboard tonight.

It's cool that they're calling for auditions from the Jan 2014 online test.
I think I passed it, but didn't get an email last year.

I'm not sure if I picked Boston or New York for my city.
