To the unlucky ones

We thank everyone who came to the signup meeting. As of September 26, 2018, we have selected new students using a lottery system. <%-- Students who were selected have already been informed. As usual there was some turnover early on and a few people on the waitlist got in this way. Unfortunately, no more people will be able to join from now on. --%>

Those who were not lucky at the lottery had the option to sign up to be on the waitlist in case any students drop out. <%-- People on the waitlist has also been informed - check your email inbox! There is usually some turnover early on. To get in from this waitlist, make sure to attend the ground school (see front page). --%>
