2015 Online Test

Post by kingskip »

Any word on when the online test will be for this year? Usually it would have already taken place but I haven't heard anything about it.

Although looking at the J! website, it seems like the most recent test was still the adult one, the rest (Kids, Teens, College) were last held in 2013.

I don't think they're that exact about washing people out of the pool. At least, I hope not, because I supposedly washed out in November. And with a new online test being delayed, maybe they will keep people past their sell-by date?

I don't expect to EVER get the call, but I can't help hoping against hope.
Teems with quiet fun.

For many of the online tests they have been advertised with the appropriate level contestants participating in the promo. We seem to have boardies here for each taping week in 2015? Anyone want to give their taping week and confirm they did not tape such a promo or that they did do the extra spot?

The way I see it there will be a regular player online test in 2015. Yes, in years past it happened in January. This year it will not. When it happens everyone who needs it will know about it in plenty of time to register and do it. The news will not sneak by anyone. As part of that process the cities will be listed.

Until that happens the CCs can call players from previous auditions even if the given time period in the pool has passed.

Answers for all of the uncertainty will come piece by piece.

Auditions are planned in some of the usual cities, beginning in March. Make of that what you will.

Maybe they'll invite people who passed the test last year but weren't invited?

That seems to be what they're doing, I've already heard of auditions in Chicago and DC based on last year's test, plus there was the Denver only test that people have been called to audition from.

That's not a bad idea (to just call people who passed last year's test). Chances are if you scored a 44 last January that you'll do something similar again.

I'd like it more if they expanded the pool to the 2013 test.

I took the online test in 2012 but they didn't get around to doing the regional audition (Sacramento) until March 2013. I should have dropped out of the pool in September of 2014, but they called me in November to offer me a tape date in January 2015. So, don't give up hope.

Wow, that beats my getting The Call fifteen days after exiting the pool (auditioned 8/8/07, called 2/23/09).

In at least two previous years, the national online test was conducted in February. At least one was on or around Valentine's Day, and I'm pretty sure the year my wife was given an in-house audition came after a February test.

I don't see anything unusual at this point. Fret not, amigos.

Perhaps Myron could update his link list? viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1711&start=35

The adult tests were Jan. 7 -9, 2014 and Jan. 8 - 10, 2013

The only February test I'm seeing in the previous two years is the Teen one from 2/13/13

Sony has delayed their quarterly results because the accounting systems at Sony Pictures are not back up to speed yet because of the hacking. Having an online test is the least of their worries right now.
