Pointer, what a coincidence - I’m also going from Newfoundland to NYC! I’m in the April 25 audition group, though.
Wow! Best of luck to you! This your first time?
I've had to request a change of day, as I have a couple of medical specialist appointments around that time. Still waiting to hear if I can be rescheduled.

This is an interesting coincidence - I’m coming down from Halifax! Perhaps they’ve decided that Atlantic Canada is a major untapped resource!

Hey, I'm from P.E.I. and... well I'm not auditioning since I didn't take the test, but I'm now wishing I had since the floodgates have apparently opened. :lol:

Seriously though, congrats and good luck!

Thank you, and best of luck to you all as well. It would be great if at least one of us from Atlantic Canada showed them what they've been missing out on. There have been others, of course, but it's been too long.

Have you received any details about the audition in New York, like the location where it will be held? I've never been to NYC before. Have you? If so, do you have an idea of a reasonably-priced place to stay?

I've had to request a change of date because of medical appointments, and until today I was wondering if I had blown my chances, but I got an email this afternoon offering an audition at the end of May instead. You can be sure I'm taking that one!

Yes, I got an email with lots more details just a couple days after submitting my RSVP! Location, a form to fill out, everything.

I have visited NYC before with my family, but this is the first time I'll be footing the bill! My boyfriend did quite a bit of research and found a private room in a hostel in a convenient location to the audition spot. Hostelworld dot com is a good resource for comparing and contrasting features and prices.

Very happy to hear they were able to reschedule you - best of luck!!

Congratulations! I wrote the test many times before I got my first audition in 2013, and my second last November.

Which reminds me, I need to renew my passport - what if, just maybe.... :lol:

Best of luck to all the invitees!

Has anyone been invited for Philadelphia yet? Since Boston was not an option this time around, I asked my SO which site she would like an excuse to visit, and she has friends in NJ (I guess I’m glad I asked- I would have guessed NYC or New Orleans)

Shout out to all Jeopardy! hopefuls auditioning this spring: I’m working on a Medium blog post about the Jeopardy! auditions. If you’re interested in talking about your experience, get in touch by PM. I can meet up with anyone auditioning in NYC or I can send my questions by email. I’d like to get representation from a few different audition sites across the US/Canada

Are there ever pre-audition meetups or threads about such? I'm hoping for a Detroit audition to float my way and it'd be cool to know a couple people in the waiting room.
