    It varies for each region, though. Last year they BEGAN notifying finalists (based on past threads):
    ASSE: 3/8 (last year, but the year before it was much later because of interview delays)
    FLAG: ~3/15
    AFS: ~3/7
    YFU: ~3/31
    CIEE: ~3/20

    It's all subject to change though, especially because of timing of interviews and stuff. Plus, there wasn't much on the 2016-2017 thread so I mostly used 2015-2016. Best of luck to everyone! The end (or beginning?) is near :)

    Hi! I'm a sophomore in High School and I'm going to have an interview in NYC in February (AFS). Can anyone send me an invite to the Facebook group? Best luck to everyone!

    Thanks! The anticipation is killing me, I hope YFU announces earlier than 3/31. Based off some communication I've had with YFU Admissions, it actually looks like they should be done with interviews by the middle/end of the month at the latest. So hopefully not too long after that.

    @Gabe0406 I'm going to that interview as well, mine is this Saturday the 11th in the morning.
  • Gabe0406Gabe0406 Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
    @Yasmin Same! I have mines at 9 o'clock; I can't believe it's only 2 days away!
