What happens if my application is accepted?
We accept a small number of applicants. If your application is accepted, we will offer you an agreement for one of your desired teams. We try to honor offering you your most desired team first, but that is not always the case. Please don't list a team unless you would be happy following and writing about them. Once we offer you an agreement you will have 7 days to complete the agreement process. As we only offer each team on a limited basis, we can only extend the offer for that short time period before we offer your slot to someone else so be prepared to complete the process before you apply. To be prepared, be sure to read the entire FAQ so most of your questions are answered before you apply. Once we offer you an agreement,if you do not complete the process within 7 days you will have to wait 6 months to reapply. Should your application be rejected, you may re-apply after 45 days.
