    1) I'm sure most are carried out this way: You walk in, fill out an application, hand it to the staff at the application desk, he/she hands you a number, and then you sit in the waiting room. You, as well as 9 other people's numbers, will be called and you walk into the audition room. You all line up and sit against a wall and every one auditions one by one behind a line of tape while 2-3 judges watch you and a cameraman films you. After everyone is done auditioning, they do the rhythm test, or in other words, they play a random song (from what I've heard, usually Disturbia by Rihanna, Lose My Breath by Destiny's Child or Low by T-Pain) and you have the choice to either dance along or clap to the beat (dancing will raise your chances). After that, you and your group leave the room and they call you 1-2 weeks later if you've passed. I'm pretty sure both the weekly and global auditions are carried out in the same fashion, except they take more time to evaluate you during the weekly auditions opposed to the global auditions, where they seem to rush everybody because of the amount of people.

    2) I would recommend the weekly audition because there won't be as many people, and they would, again, take more time to evaluate you and actually pay attention to you when you audition.

    3) Nope, not that I know of.

    4) Yeah, I'm pretty sure you can ask them if you can reschedule the date.

    5) Well, they usually don't invest money into someone until they have signed the contract to become a trainee. But I'm guessing if they're "100% satisfied" with you, then possibly.

    6) You can switch to another company, you'll just have to go through the audition process all over again. And I think they will have you pay off some of the expenses if you decide to go to another company.

    7) I'm pretty sure they don't let there artists go around flip-flopping companies. Once your contract ends, they decide whether they will renew it, or let you go.

    8) Just because I'm lazy and don't feel like typing it out hahaha:

    9) I'm not sure, I dont think they would choose someone just based on their video, you would have to see them in person at some point in time. They want to see if the person in the video is really you.

    10) Both are great companies, SM is based on looks. YG is based on talent.

    11) They make that decision for you, whether you debut as a solo artist or in a group.

    12) Look on their website.

    13) Im pretty sure you can't contact any SM trainees unless you're related.

    Hahaha good luck man

    why would u wanna audition for sm? ive heard their really cruel. they will pretty much treat you like a slave and make you starve . if u have a lil flaw they will force you do to plastic surgery. if you ever debut they make you work all the time non stop no rest. And ive heard they are quite unfair with the money they give you. go into a different company thats more caring.
