Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I've never done a second of prep for the in-person test and I've passed 7 of the 8 I've taken (and most of those were when there was only an in-person test). It's like those people who sit outside the exam rooms in college cramming at the last second -- either you know it our you don't. Cramming is...

Considering this is still May, did you happen to mention you were about to drown? If you did, what did they say about eligibility?

Re: Familiar face on Millionaire

I need to find out if I'm swimming on that pool. I passed in October of 2013, when I got my happy email that I'm in the pool, it said I would drown in May 2015; yet the website shows anyone who tried out after June 2011 is still swimming.

I was hoping to see you get a stopper, Paul. I remember a guy that would act like he got something on his shirt when the graphic appeared on screen and wipe it off. Was that you?

Re: Familiar face on Millionaire

Has anyone ever told you your smile looks a bit like Milton Berle's? No, but I used to do a pretty good Gene Siskel. When he died, two thoughts went through my head: 1) "How tragic!" 2) "Well, there goes that gig." Mighty magnanimous of you to list them in that order, if you ask me. I give it two t...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I think we can get close.

We know three days in Boston, we should know how many people per session and how long each session takes.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Well we've seen Boston, then Atlanta, now KC but with a gap in there for what I would guess is the Tampa stop.

Anyone get that invite yet?

Good thing is we should be able to end speculation of if they spend more time in one city over another.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I'm not sure how true that is. When I lived in NY, I passed the test & was selected twice for the auditions at the Waldorf. I moved south before the Jan. 2013 test & I've passed it three times & not been called. I think they spend more days in Boston, nyc, philly etc so that averages out the differ...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I really doubt the CCs are in here or anywhere else looking to exclude people from an audition. They just don't have the time. Does the reason they are here affect the time they have? They are here. That much is certain. Whether or not they are here to exclude anybody from an audition, I will not s...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

No bitterness at all, was just pointing out the numbers to help lessen the disappointment of those multiple passers and never swimmers. I am very excited with my anticipation of getting an invite to Tampa. But I also know it may not happen. I really doubt the CCs are in here or anywhere else looking...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

10,000 people pass the test, about 2500 get an audition. I've passed three straight without the invite, here's hoping it's not four.

2500 audition, 360 make the show.

These are rough numbers, but you see the odds.

Considering the other stories here, I would suspect that has more to do with other dates just not being available when they received your request to reschedule.

Re: The Theory of Categories

I think if you were to do this huge undertaking, you'd need a 5th category for the unclassifiable ones just called "General Knowledge". There will be some that can fit two of the other categories and others that are just too weird to put anywhere. Things such as the Three Cheers category would requi...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

For those of you that have been around here longer: What is the normal practice of the traveling audition team...do they tend to hit all the cities in a sweeping trip, or might they do Boston in early June, then another city a few weeks later, then back to the east coast, etc.? My thought would be f...

If it isn't already a term, I'll be the first to use it:

FJ was an instaguess.

Didn't know it, but guessed the correct response immediately and wrote it down while using the rest of the time to think of something I liked better.

Glad I didn't come up with something I liked better.

Re: I know we've got a few folks on here from Baltimore

Having been driving for the past 26 years, some of them professionally, I can attest to the fact, like everyone else, that NOBODY knows how to drive.
