Professional Internships Spring 2013-Question!

So, I recently graduated college and wanted to apply for some professional internships in August. Problem is, most require you to still be in school. Does anyone know if there are ones that allow college graduates to apply? Thank you.

As far as I know, for all internships you have to either still be in school, or graduated the previous semester. I did the CP the fall after I graduated, and I'm not eligible for another internship until I'm done with my first semester of grad school.

There is currently on a PI up on the interns page (not sure why...maybe someone dropped it) and this is listed under the Internship Eligibility section:

"Must be enrolled in a college/university taking at least one class in the semester/quarter (spring/fall) prior to participation in the internship program OR currently participating in a Disney College Program or Disney Professional Internship."

I've read this many places before because I'm planning on doing the CP for the Fall 2013 program and then applying for a PI to do directly after since I would be doing the CP after graduation. I've also looked it up because I wanted to make sure I'd be able to do to do a PI.

ah ok thanks that's perfect then!
do you or anyone else know when the fall PIs start, do they all start in June? I was maybe going to apply for a CP and PI so I could have another chance for the PI later if I didn't get it but I don't think I can anymore since I'd be taking classes until June 20th.

You can apply for a PI while on the CP. I did the CP after I graduated, and I was still able to apply for a PI while on my CP. So as long as you apply while you're on your CP, you'll be fine.

ok thanks that's great then :D
for the people that have gotten a PI, did you have other internships besides a CP? and/or were your grades really good? and if you did a CP right before did it help you to meet people before you applied?

Does anyone know the schedule of pi applicatIons? Do they go out before the holiday season or after the new year? From what I'm gathering it seems that most pis start in June. When does the Application for those typically begin?
