Thank you elif for setting up a new thread for Oct. 2019 intake.

I was also wondering when can we expect the first reply from them?

I have received no news so far.

Hello Everyone! I am new to this group. I am an American with a US juris doctor and a French LLM in European Law. I have not heard anything yet... I suppose we should hear by the middle of March for pre-selection? Perhaps in April?

Hello All! I have received a pre-selection. It requests that I upload some confirmation documents by next week. After the documents are uploaded, what are the next steps?

Hi :) from what I understand, once we pass the eligibility check with the supporting documents, we go into the Blue Book. So we're about 2000 applicants now competing for around 650 traineeship places :)

Does anyone know, by any chance, whether the translation of the requested documents from non-EU nationals is required to be made by a certified court interpreter?

Hi guys,

might be silly question, but does anyone know if all the documents of all 6 requirements have to be put in 1 or does it just mean that for each you should add them together if that makes sense?

I think we should merge all supporting documents in one file (if that answers your question). Smile

Hey guys! I just realized that I only provided my permanent address telephone number in my application which I am currently not using. Is there any way I could add my current phone number? Or maybe I could email someone about this? Thank you Smile

Hey everybody, congrats to those who have been pre-selected! Does anybody know how long will we have to wait before our documents are approved?
Cheers!

Hi guys,

I have also been preselected and want to upload the requested documents, however, the website is down and it says that the server is temporarily unavailable. I suppose others have the same issue. Anyone knows when it's going to be up again or if there is any other option of uploading the documents?

Thanks!

Just went into the website and it is also down for me, so I guess it is like this for everyone. If it does not get back up, I would write EAC-STAGES-PRESELECTIONS @ ec.europa.eu and ask about what to do (maybe even send the file to them).

Has any of you already receive calls from the DGs? It seems this year they are faster with the preselection results than normal...

Pp10,

What kind of calls? Responses from lobbying or random calls about your candidacy? I though this should not happen untill our documents are approved?

From what I read on the forum...in previous years, people were receiving calls from DG to inquire about their availability already from the 2nd day since the preselection results were out. But I might be wrong....

well I suppose it's too early for that. Probably somewhere around May or June, it's my guess.

Anyway, does anyone knows where I can check up the statistics for how many people applied and of that how many were preselected for this term, also the nationality, gender, etc. stats.

Thanks!

Good evening everybody! And congratations of course for those who have been preselected! I've just downloaded the supporting documents,  I hope it was ok. Smile  So, I've just received the confirmation letter about the successful download, but I cannot see this file in my account, right? Are there any other non-EU candidates?

Yeah, I do not think that you can see the file on your account - but it shows in my notifications with green letters that the PDF file was sent.

Oh, thank you very much for the information! The same situation with my account, so now I feel more certain and hope that all is ok with the documents download. Well, now we only have to wait for the results.  By the way, when will the results be known, around the end of April? ( I mean preselection for Blue Book)

Probs around the start of May. I am very curious to see if they actually decline anybody at this point and if they let everyone know at the same time. I mean - what could be the cause for documents not being accepted (besides that they do not have the general date and signature requirements)?

Really, I don't know.  I heard only about situations with incorrect  date. Frankly speaking, I made as well two errors with dates (the mistype with months), but I indicated it in my supporting document. Maybe it will not save me Very Happy If anybody knows the requirements regarding the translation of documents?

How big was your error? I have made one with mine too, but it was a 15-day error (I wrote in my application 1st of February but apparently according to my recommendation letter my employer thought I worked until 15th January Very Happy Very Happy ). I thought that this is a rather minor error so I just left the document as it was. Hopefully, they will not worry about it too much.

Oh I think that 15-days error  is a minor mistype Smile As for me, the situation is not so good) The first error was related to the start of my French course (one month error). And as for my professional experience, in one line I indicated the start of one position from  01.01 instead 01.10  Rolling Eyes (but it was in the framework of the working in the same company for  several years, without a breach in the service), and I indicated these moments in the supporting documents. I know that I had to be more attentive to details at the moment of application, but nothing to do now, it is too late Smile

Well, I think that the case that you worked for them for several years changes the situation - I believe they chose you because of extensive work experience, and if it already has several years on the case several missing months should not do too much of a damage. Honestly, I believe that many of the applicants have done such mistakes and that the evaluators will have to go through a looooot of stuff - so it should not be an issue. Fingers crossed!
