I just got an audition invitation Tuesday for 3/24 in DC based off last May's test. Interesting. I wasn't even expecting that at this point considering the online tests are coming up again.

Did anyone else get one?
Congrats. My streak of failing to get an audition despite scoring 40+ on the online test has now been extended to 7 years. I think I am beyond frustration at this point.

My streak extends to 8 years right now. Don’t feel too bad.

I did as well! If there's anyone else in that audition group, if you aren't local, I would recommend figuring out your travel plans ASAP - the Jeopardy auditions aren't the only thing going on in DC that day.
I got a DC audition, but on Monday, 3/26.

So last week, I was on vacation in Nashville and having a beer while watching a band in one of the honky tonks. I feel my phone buzz so I pull it out of my purse and IT IS FREAKIN' JEOPARDY. I got the call! Incredibly excited.

Online test: I think it was May 30, 2017 - I thought it was the worst out of the 3-4 tests I've done (I calculated between 33-35 correct) and really didn't expect to get an invite to an in-person audition.

In-person audition: Toronto on November 15, 2017

The call: March 9, 2018

Taping: April 4, 2018

Air date: week of July 23-27, 2018

😊😊😊

Thank you! I was in your group in the morning - the girl with the swan sweater if you remember that. ☺️

I do remember that. (I was to your immediate left in the mock game!)

Your receiving The Call comes as zero surprise to me whatsoever.

Thank you, Andy - I suppose the shirt stood out to them. Fingers crossed that you get your own call soon!

Congrats. My streak of failing to get an audition despite scoring 40+ on the online test has now been extended to 7 years. I think I am beyond frustration at this point.
My streak extends to 8 years right now. Don’t feel too bad.
Starting with the 2009 quiz I have passed 7 times without an invite. This week was passing score number 8 but this time that horrid streak ends and I get to go to the audition right here in Cleveland. Uh, I do, don't I????

Quick turnaround and less than 30 days notice to prepare!

I see they've also scheduled tapings on 4/11 and 4/12, so more calls will go out :)

PS/ April 4 is my birthday, so I'm wishing you good luck by proxy
