    Lol! My last post was about saying that your chances of getting in are the same as they always were, but your chances of being upgraded based on the first round of shortlister replies is slimmer, because there were so few to begin with (read the previous post - not mine - about how the upgrades work). My theory is that vancouver alternates have a better chance of getting in during the later waves of upgrades - when the special requests come in. So chins up!!! Don't lose hope if you haven't been upgraded yet! I have a feeling that good things are around the corner for you guys - just maybe later than the first round!

    There is exactly one person on this forum with any idea of any upgrades that may or may not happen. Miami Coordinator.

    The rest of us are merely speculating. Do not stress out about your chances of being upgraded or not. It's only causing stress over something you cannot control in any way at all. Best to do other things and prepare for the worst case than to sit around here being all despairy.

    Someone else from the UK just got upgraded today. He posted it a few minutes ago on the UK JET facebook page.

    It's good that upgrades are still happening. I'll have to keep my fingers crossed that I get the call!

    Even MC can only speculate, when it comes to other countries (and maybe even other cities). All I have to offer is speculation too, based on my knowledge of the number of shortlisters this year (which I needed to have for a project I'm working on) the rest is just guesses. My hope was to just calm the nerves of anyone who is anxious about not hearing back yet. My guess is that, from my city, most alternates will be upgraded later on (well after shortlister replies) when the requests come in for upgrades that are more general. My ultimate message: don't give up hope yet!!

    And congrats to all UK upgrades!

    LaVie could you add spman2009, ckrisp and Matttheprat in red when you have time? I'm not sure exactly when everyone was upgraded but I bet they'd love to see their name change colours on that list haha!!

    Hey LaVie, sorry to trouble you. I'm alternate out of Chicago and was upgraded on 5/5. Hope to hear about some ITIL upgrades soon.

    And Este, that's good news. Maybe some forms are still being processed. Good luck again.

    No problem, I was upgraded on the second of May. I have to admit, I am looking forward to seeing my name in red. Cheers!
