Great idea, but why would an application be so long (1-2 hours to complete)? This is somewhat of a deterrent. Based on my volunteer experience, the most motivated in this demographic will show up anyway. Why be so exclusive? Only in New York City (i.e. the culture of exclusion and cherry picking). This doesn't happen to this extent in Silicon Valley at all.
