We want to thank everyone for their patience while the mentors read through entries and made their picks. Below you will find who each mentor will be working with. In some cases, mentors are taking on more than one mentee; additional picks can be found below the master chart.
The mentors want everyone to know what a difficult process this was–choosing was not easy! Congratulations to those who have been matched, and to those who weren’t: keep working! The mentors saw a lot of promise in the inbox, but just didn’t have the personal bandwidth to take everyone on. That said, some of you will receive personalized feedback from the mentors via email; the mentors who are able to will be sending feedback over the next few weeks.
Stay tuned to our website, as the mentors are compiling advice based on trends they saw in the inbox, which will post as a series of blog posts later in the month.
If you see yourself on this list, your mentor will be in touch shortly!
