Since it is not possible for everyone to get their first choice, it is very important that you consider all choices carefully. We encourage you to participate in different types of projects each year. Past experiences will be taken into account in the placement process; If you have participated in a popular project in the past, 特别是旅行项目, be prepared that you may not be placed on a similar project this year. Travel projects are ones where the participant did not sleep at home for the majority of the project.
Criteria that will affect project placement include: year in school, 本地与旅游项目的历史, 以往项目选择编号, 学校vs独立项目, 以及群体兼容性. Although it is fun to do projects with your friends, one of the goals of project week is Challenge and this may take the form of interacting with people outside your circle of friends. Teachers will often request splitting up students to improve the project dynamics. Therefore, groups who decide to list all the same projects often find themselves widely scattered. As a result,it is best to make your own decisions about what you would really like to do. Students should be prepared to participate in any of their five choices.
看到 下面的最后期限. If you do not complete the sign-up process by the due date, you will not be included in the first placement and will be placed in a project on a space available basis.
