Default Gentle Suggestion For GT Applicants

Hello.. I guess this is really for Mods and Admins.....not applicants. LOL
I wanted to make and observation and kind suggestion.

Regarding the GE Application Process.

I know the GE is not permitted to be discussed outside the GE, so I will try to refrain from doing so.

I have heard that someone applied for GE long ago when they were quite new. And received a nice letter telling them several things needed to do before being considered for the GE program.

They applied again. And never heard anything again. No letter. So they never knew the result of their application. Or what they could do to improve.


They applied again and a month later again they heard nothing.


Now.....it is not the denial of getting into the esteemed GE that I am writing about.

It is the denial letter that once was written that explained WHY and what to do that would end the wondering (are we being considered still? after a month? were we forgotten? can we reapply? what did we do wrong? What dowe Need to work on?)

The letter was so helpful! It put and end to the application. It gently explained why, what needed to be done.
To apply for the GE is like a right of passage for a lot of us and I feel a lot of us wait every day to hear some news from someone, when we hear nothing. Doesn't something so important as applying and agreeing to the GE deserve a resolution?

I am not trying to be resentful for hurtful or harassing in any way.

I know the GE is inundatedi right now with so many trainees and coaches that it is overwhelming!!! But your members who do not get in deserve as much curtosy in my opinion.

I just think that people who take the time to apply to the GE deserve something in the way of an explanation so we are not left wondering for months what happened.

Thank you for reading this. I know other members feel this way.
I apologize if it is against the rules.........but I do not know who to talk to about this.......and it is frustrating and takes away from the continuity of this forum.

The first time I applied, and I think the second, I never got letters telling me why I was rejected. But they seem like they would have been so helpful! (:

I did ask and they said they were not permitted to discuss details about the GE (who was accepted or other details).



So you can see why I felt stuck.

It was just a disconnection that makes us (the Webkinz) feel separated from the (Gifted)

I would also like to state that what I say below is to be helpful and I am not aware of not being able to discuss this material. So if its a problem let me know.

Okay it was my thought that once you apply if your name is still there they have not received your request yet as this takes time. Now if they remove your name because you do not qualify and you reapply you would not want to re-apply more than once. Iinstead check to see if your name is still on the list after your first reapplication. What is a good idea is to really familiarize yourself with all the rules for giftedness so that you will not get denied. Make sure you have everything you are supposed to have and if you do not, do not apply until you do. Applying when you are not at a place to qualify slows your process even more. All of the rules and requirements are listed on the site. So a letter in this case wouldn't be necessary since what you need is listed.

Adding notes is a wonderful idea, I just wonder if WI is has enough mods to do this. It might not be possible for them to get those notes out to everyone. I could be wrong there too. See the problem is the more we add to this process the even slower it will become..sigh..I am not sure what the answer is.

Also in looking back, I don't remember that anyone contacted me at all about any of this process rather...one day the section I would need would be opened and I could then enter it and get started. So...its not common for there to be a lot of communication really about your status. I do see though that if months and months go by there might be a need for some sort of communication..but that can be remedied by contacting the moderator.

Before this is closed, I want to say... I knew this was true, but I never got a letter. I got in on my first application, before the GT program, but I really think this is a nice idea.
