I am trying to get a clear view and information on the general application process. I know they accept people from the AngelList but what is the actual process? How does someone apply and how does the process of said application go?

I have no knowledge on this topic but I have read about it and I found this question on Quora with a pretty insightful answer.

It is quite long so be prepared to read through the entire process.

I pulled up the same results as the person above. It is a very long process, too long to list off here. It is best to read over that man's post so you can see from a real person's perspective what the process is like.

I have never applied to know myself. I do know someone who has gone through the process. I will ask him when I talk to him, maybe he can explain it in a short paragraph for you and I will post it here.

@demarco Wow that is a long and detailed post! Thanks for sharing it. I had a friend asking me about this the other day and I was not sure what to tell them because I had never gone through it myself.

I remember someone talking about this a few years ago. They were saying the process is not as complex as it seems, there is just a lot of waiting time. That is the main downside of it.

@howell_damore  This is the case for a lot of things. Have you ever looked through the process of immigration into the US? I know someone who went through it to be with their spouse and according to online information, it costs a lot and can take up to 3 years. They got it done in just 6 months.

This is the best article I found on the topic. It answers a lot of questions you may have about the process and things to know when going through it. I found it helpful myself when I applied.
