    My boyfriend and I are both alternates. Any idea what the future looks like for us?

    I'm pretty cynical, and figure if we are even lucky to get upgraded we'll most likely be very far apart.

    well, you know, this is where the competition is all at. I mean this in a friendly way, of course, but it is interesting to see who's accepted and who is not.
