One of the contestant coordinators asked almost everyone about their "fur babies." I think if I get an audition again, I'll make up a dog or cat.

If they're that interested in fur babies, they might ask to see a picture on your cellphone...copy one from the internet to be prepared.

That's the kind of question I got at the last audition, though not about a pet.

Has anyone received the emailed invitation and then not received the follow up email with the actual location of the audition? I got an email to audition in New York on April 22 and replied yes immediately but with the audition less than a week away, I still don't have the details. I replied again this morning, but so far no response. I've read the initial email dozens of times and I'm sure I did everything right. Any ideas or experiences?

They say 10 business days, but not knowing when you received the initial... *shrug*?
My confirmation took 10 days (not business) to turn up after the initial.

I would say check and double check to make sure no emails have gone to a spam folder. I don't know how likely, but maybe the second email could have been from a different address than the first. If no luck there, then I guess double check that the address you've sent your emails to is the correct address that the initial email told you to use. If nothing seems amiss there, then I guess you're in a bad spot.

I would email again to be sure. I would also go into my sent items and print the original reply. Then if I heard nothing, I would just show up, and explain that you never got a reply.

The worst that happens is they turn you away from the audition; the best that happens is they let you in.

Any boardies care to let us know how their NYC audition went?

Retroactive good luck to those who had auditions yesterday and today! Anyone know if Saturday is the last day in New York?

This will be made friends only in one week. Basically an overall review of my day and the audition, 4/21 in NYC. Some RARE (but great!) things happened, and I think I made an incredible impression.

Any questions you have that I didn't answer about the process in general, specific, or otherwise, I'm good for it! No test material specific questions, of course. Good golly, this was a Top 10 day AT LEAST in my life. Outstanding. Maggie and I, ohhh man, that went well with energy bounceback and playing off one another. We got along like peas in a pod, surreal.

Today (Sunday) was the last day in NYC
