I haven't, and nobody I know who has applied via sponsored pool has heard anything either... Regional GTA interviews are on Nov 18, so they're supposed to let us know by tomorrow. :/

I serve as Pres of a youth-led charity called SJMF Youth - I lead the exec team in fundraising money, and I also lead them on annual house-building trips to the Dominican Republic (3 years exp).

As well, I work as Videographer at a Junior Achievement company, and am the Co-Pres/Co-founder of a proposed overnight bonding trip at my school called IB Ready (meant to reduce unhealthy competitiveness and increase bonding in my school's IB Program). I also founded this school-wide environmental event, but that was only 1 year in Gr. 9.

As for awards, don't have too many of those except minor literature ones.

UPDATE:
I emailed the foundation. For the GTA area, 60/70 finalists have been invited (the remaining ten will be invited by noon today). 

Sort of strange that I haven't found any records on any forums of anyone being invited :/

I heard back, this is what they said:
Thank you for contacting us to receive clarification. Only successful applicants will be notified if they are invited to regional interviews. Unfortunately, these invitations have already gone out and have been confirmed. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Oh well, NOW, I can cry. Congratulations o all the successful candidates though! Hope things go well.

Has anyone from the direct pool heard anything? I know the direct pool semi finalists would be contacted before Dec. 20, but I don't know exactly when they are sending out emails. Good Luck Y'all.

Hey, I was contacted as a semi finalist, and my interview is next week.

That said I wouldn't panic, they probably will keep on sending out emails throughout the next couple of weeks.

At this point, I think everyone arriving at this forum probably didn't get an interview but is looking for confirmation (I was one of those people as well), so I'm going to try and be positive and just congratulate everyone for applying and getting through that super long application, and for getting sponsorships. I thought my chances were going to be really good, as I'm sure a lot of people did and was honestly surprised I didn't get interviewed, but everyone here has done well in their communities, so congrats!

I was honestly really really upset, but I know the chances were so low anyway, I'm blaming myself but eventually, I'll have to move on there are more scholarships out there.

5000? It was only 4500+ last year so this is pretty tough.

Don't worry about it guys --
It can be a bit of a toss-up at times. You'll have other awesome opportunities to prove them wrong!

By email. My interview date was in the email.

Apparently, if we aren't contacted by tomorrow, we will not move on as finalists. I guess my chances are slim now, but whatever will be will be!
