Junior FWL members are sophomores, juniors and seniors. We will begin accepting new member applications for the 2018-2019 school year on February 12, 2018.
We do not accept late applications. We know that delays can be an unfortunate reality… but in the case of more applicants than we have spaces, it is unavoidable: we must eliminate any paperwork that comes in after the deadline.
For this reason, we strongly encourage you to begin the process of requesting references and preparing your paperwork even if you haven’t made a final decision about Junior FWL yet. We cannot extend the deadline simply because someone didn’t decide to apply until the last day.
We do not review incomplete applications. It is a possibility that at some point during the process between completing the New Member Application, and requesting the two references, an applicant may have changed her mind and elected not to go forward. We also assume that if we didn’t receive a reference, it is possible that the reference writer preferred not to give an Applicant a positive recommendation. Therefore, we can only consider complete applications.
We will review all applications in April 2018. All applicants will be contacted by Tuesday, May 1, 2018.
We know that it seems like it would be easier to complete a digital application, but we’re old school — we need the printed paperwork. Thanks for understanding!
