Since it seems like an actual thing at this point that there's a forum page for a CBYX application year, I'm deciding to make it this year since it's likely applications will open up soon! I'm from the CIEE region, specifically Virginia. I feel like us Northern Virginia people might be better off in AFS but I won't complain since it seems AFS is even more competitive than CIEE XD. This was mainly made to let us CBYX 2018-2019 hopefuls connect with each other and share posts, videos, and advice that will help each other through the application process!
If there are any alumni lurking around for whatever reason, even if you're from NSLI-Y or another State Department program, please give us your advice! ^_^
