Teach For America - 2019 Corps

Hi All,

I’m starting this thread for those who are applying to the 2019 corps, or for those who are interested in applying.

I’m applying for the last early application deadline (April 13, 2018).

    Interview notifications will be sent out on April 20, 2018. Is there any advantage to submitting your application prior to the April 13, 2018 deadline?

    Hi @bethhhh92! I applied 2019 Early Application, too. I applied in the second round with the February deadline and just had my interview yesterday! There isn't an advantage to submitting your application before the deadline, but I would recommend doing so. I know that I kept tweaking my essay responses and it just made me more nervous. Make sure it includes everything you want and need, and submit it. I highly recommend not waiting until the actual deadline date because you never know what may come up that day that could keep you from submitting your app on time.

    I'm currently playing the waiting game to hear back on my acceptance. I'm sure you'll do great, but let me know if you have any questions about the application!

    hey @HopingForTFA2019 I think I am on the same timeline as you for admissions decision, has anything chnaged on your portal? I noticed my timeline that is usually at the top dissapeared, I hope that its not a sign of bad news....
  • HopingForTFA2019HopingForTFA2019 Registered User Posts: 176 Junior Member
    Hi @owlgirlphilly! My timeline is also missing. Generally, from everything I have read in the 2018 forum, there appears to be a correlation between the absent timeline and acceptance. Most individuals whose timeline did not disappear or did disappear, but then reappeared, seem to not get in. But, I have also seen people with a timeline get in....I think I've been stalking these forums just a litttttle too much! LOL

    LOL @HopingForTFA2019 me too. I've never been more anxious for a monday in my life
  • HopingForTFA2019HopingForTFA2019 Registered User Posts: 176 Junior Member
    @owlgirlphilly I think I'm a bit more excited than I am nervous! Have you already looked through all the regions to see where you would like to go, if accepted?
  • owlgirlphillyowlgirlphilly Registered User Posts: 6 New Member
    Yes a little bit, part of me would like to stay in the Philadelphia region, but I am also considering DC Baltimore NJ, then the other half of me is like okay I'm going to Hawaii lol, what about you? I'm also a little confused about when we would find out our region because we are early admissions
  • HopingForTFA2019HopingForTFA2019 Registered User Posts: 176 Junior Member
    @owlgirlphilly I’m kind of all over the place with mine! I don’t want to get my heart set on somewhere if I don’t qualify for that region. To answer your confusion, those who are accepted also receive a list of regions they qualify to teach in as well as subjects based on your transcripts. Your list is made from those choices.
  • owlgirlphillyowlgirlphilly Registered User Posts: 6 New Member
    OHHH okay I understand, I guess I should just not make up my mind about anywhere just yet then
  • HopingForTFA2019HopingForTFA2019 Registered User Posts: 176 Junior Member
    @owlgirlphilly Yeah, unfortunately we are kept in the dark a bit. If accepted, EA find out their region, but not the subject or grade until Fall.
  • owlgirlphillyowlgirlphilly Registered User Posts: 6 New Member
    @HopingForTFA2019 I hope things work out in your favor tomorrow! keep me posted
  • HopingForTFA2019HopingForTFA2019 Registered User Posts: 176 Junior Member
    Hey, @owlgirlphilly! Same to you! Look forward to hearing your results!
  • HopingForTFA2019HopingForTFA2019 Registered User Posts: 176 Junior Member

    Hey! Just applied to TFA to be part of the 2019 corps! Supposed to hear back this upcoming Friday

    Hoping if I join to teach French (funny as it's a subject a lot of people are told they are qualified to teach and then say they've never studied it, meanwhile I'm a French major)
  • owlgirlphillyowlgirlphilly Registered User Posts: 6 New Member
    I got in as well! Now the wait is on for subject assignment !!
