did anyone else get the "congratulations! Your invention has been chosen for final consideration in Atlanta?
if so, a couple of questions

Did you hear upon leaving that they will be calling you or did you hear nothing but "good luck" - This has been the longest 3 weeks of my life and I am sure that my sister (fellow inventor) feels the same. Also, if we do not hear anything by June, does that mean we have been "knocked out" of the competition?

Any answers from anyone would be helpful and appreciated.

Also, anyone with some experience (who has made it on previous seasons) could post some of their walk would be great. Also, Does anyone know who the female judge was? I know who the two men were.
Thanks in advance for any information

From past experience (auditioning for season 2) it took almost a year when all was said and done to hear if you made the final 14. They usually won't let you know unless your eliminated out of due diligence before they have seen all of the cities on their list and have had time to deliberate on marketability and how it would fit with the show.

I had heard that if chosen for the particular city (Atlanta was ours) that we would hear from them in 6 to 8 weeks if chosen but the letter states in Jun or July. I had heard from others that if that is the case, that would mean the product was "knocked out" of the competition. Thank you for your response though.
