Just got an email invite for auditions in Portland, OR!
Darn, haven't gotten an e-mail. Was the first time I'd passed the test, so was hoping to get lucky. I suppose it's possible they haven't sent out all invites yet though. Out of curiousity, what date is the Portland audition?

Same here, I'm curious to see what the date of the Portland audition is. I haven't heard anything yet, so I'm hoping that maybe they haven't sent out all the invites :(

Looks like it's late July for Detroit. Still saddened at the lack of invite. Probability mistreats me once more.

On r/Jeopardy, "TheGermAbides" posted on July 7 that he or she had gotten an audition invite for Detroit on the 30th.

I'm 0-for-6 now on audition invites. But in the words of my late mother, who grew up a Brooklyn Dodgers fan, "Wait till next year".

I hear ya bro. Looks like, like Bob Hope and the Oscars, the Portland auditions are, for me, during Passover this year.

One small bummer about an August audition is that an 18-month pool means possibly being locked out of the online test until 2021. I'd better make the most of my audition!

I don't recall exactly, but I think they would make a concession for someone to take the online test again if very near the end of their contestant pool eligibility. Can anyone confirm or deny?

This has come up before. IMO, if you're close to washing out of the pool, just take the test again. If you get an audition invite, you could always reply explaining the overlap. Others will tell you the exact opposite ;)

An online test came up about 3 weeks before I hit the 18 month mark one year. I emailed the contestant coordinators asking if it would be okay to take the test. They said yes, since it would be well over 18 months before I would get another invite to audition.

I auditioned in August 2007, then took the online test again in January 2009, and got The Call a month later. (That had nothing directly to do with my online test, to my knowledge. That would be weird if it did, since the last test didn't lead to an audition, and I got 34 right anyway.)
