Of course, while requiring both Facebook and Linked In could be a barrier (many creative types don't have Linked In; many people have jumped ship from Facebook), it seems to be more of a hurdle than a total roadblock, with people actually signing up for Lindked In or reactivating their Facebook accounts so they can get on the list for The League.Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of people who want to date without ditching their discretionary concerns.Foreign Ph D students who wish to attend Sapienza have two options: 1) A call for applications for foreign students is issued at the end of March.Applications are evaluated on the basis of documentation (curriculum vitae, publications, references) and knowledge of Italian is not required.Behind the scenes, The League works not unlike a private matchmaker—curated, careful, thoughtful—but with the ease and Gen Y-ness of an app, it attracts young 20 and 30-somethings, not 50 year old "entrepreneurs" looking for their fourth wives. On other apps and sites, while you can designate, say, that you are a 24-year-old woman who only wants to date men 25-34 years old, it doesn't matter: Your profile will still be visible to those 68-year-old men trolling for 24-year-old women, even though you've already said you are not interested in that. While they're careful to only show you matches that make sense for you, they'll also only show your profile to people you would potentially be interested in, too. And yet no one has cared to enforce such a practical policy on the digital dating world—until Bradford.With these nuanced yet necessary tweaks to the traditional dating app model, The League cuts through so much of the riffraff that makes dating apps good in theory but not always great in practice.Only non-Italian citizens who have obtained their academic qualifications outside of Italy may apply.Successful applicants will be assigned to a Doctoral School with fellowship. 2) Foreign candidates who do not require a fellowship can apply for a Ph D position without a grant as supernumerary students.
Foreign candidates may take the entrance examination and compete for a fellowship.
Aptly named to imply a superior caste of digital daters, The League relies on a screening algorithm that promises to keep its community "well-balanced and high-quality," so perhaps the negative press was somewhat understandable.
But beneath The League's veneer of exclusivity, there's a clever, problem-solving interface that seals it: The app's strength is its function, not its flash. Here, why you should have it on your radar: #1: The privacy thing.
I'm really enjoying my Ph D but I feel a little lonely.
I have many friends and I socialise a fair amount but I am getting frustrated in my attempts to meet somebody of the opposite sex.
