I got an email too, just thought it was odd that the sender wasn't an abc addy. But I'll give it a shot on the 17th and hope that its legit.

Good luck to everyone on this list, and to any lurkers who would be on the list if they revealed themselves.

Please let us know if they give you an indication whether or not you passed the written test. I doubt they will but this is a new procedure for them, so we can't be sure. --Bob

Since test-passers will be in the Video Pool (whatever the acronym is for that), I would expect some notification by TPTB (perhaps not immediately after the conclusion of the test, but maybe on Monday) to let people know they've entered that pool.

Calls for this list start going out tomorrow, right? Though people who passed the test are in the pool for SyndieBAM as well, so the lack of a call is not necessarily bad news.

Has anyone who was able to take the test received any feedback about their result? --Bob

The official rules state that calls can go out on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. But since they give you until the end of the day to call back and they need to fill the other 55 ROF seats from video and in-person auditioners by the end of the day on Thursday, I'd expect most, if not all, the calls to go out tomorrow. Wednesday and Thursday will be used to make enough calls to fill the slots for people whe weren't able to return their calls in time. It's possible that some of the initial calls will be going out on Wednesday. TPTB will be doing a lot of calling tomorrow!

Yes, I realize now that it's only been 2 weeks since I took the test, but it feels like forever! Has anyone heard anything yet? Postcard? Email? Carrier pigeon?

Not yet!
I agree, feels like an eternity has passed. I don't know why I am so eager to hear something, I'm pretty sure I missed to many this time. Ugh! One day I'll pass the test and interview at the same time.

SyndieBAM has a weird taping schedule, this season. According to the info from the ticket request page, they've got one day of taping on August 6 and then nothing more until September 2! I presume they've already made the calls for the August 6 episodes and all the APs are entirely focused on the prime time tapings that are currently under way. I wouldn't expect them to start making any more SyndieBAM calls until the end of next week, at the earliest.

I'm still hoping for a West Coast audition swing, because it's unlikely I'll be able to get to New York during taping season this year. --Bob

All I want to know is if I passed the test (and, thus, am in the pool).
