This group will be able to use The League to find other ambitious singles when app goes live in Charleston on Tuesday, October 23rd.
Applicants are selected based on various factors including degree, educational institution, current and past professions, title, number of referrals, and number of users inside that fit preferences. Before final admission, all applicants’ photos are reviewed and approved by the League team.
