College Program Questions Thread, Pt 4

Hello everyone! Since the last thread was quite helpful, I thought that it's about time to start another Question thread. As a current CM, I am more than happy to answer any questions.

No matter how simple, or how detailed an answer you need, this is the place! I figured it would save on creating new threads for simple questions/answers.

Good idea to start a new one (as the last ended last summer). I am also an alumni, so I can help out with questions as well

Hey Jo! I just thought it was a nice continuation of your last thread as it keeps everything in one spot instead of having to search through all the different posts.

I have a question regarding the College Program, What are the most popular roles? Also, what roles have the higher capacities such as QSFB?

Thanks, and Have a Magical Day!

Aside from the obvious spiel attractions such as KSR, GMR, EI, and JC; what are some of the more underrated/exciting/challenging attractions you guys have either experienced working at or have heard about from others?

What's the social scene for the over-21 crowd like?

Like is there good nightlife in the area and a party culture?

So I'm 19 (will be 20 by the time the CP would start for me though) so I'd be place in one of the dry-wellness apartments which means no alcohol right? One thing I'm terrified about is if I get accepted is that I might get placed into a room with room-mates who have smuggled alcohol into the room, and I know if they get caught then everybody in the room gets expelled from the program. If I was to find out somebody was smuggling something into the room would I be able to report it so that I personally would not get terminated from the program due to some other kids inability to follow the rules?

Granted that I was a CP in 1999 & 2000 I worked in FantasyLand Attractions at: Dumbo, Pooh, Ariel's Grotto,Snow Whites Scary Adventure RIP & the Tea Cups.

I'm actually going to write about my training for fantasyland attractions this week for my blog & how extensive the training was. Check out my blog sometimes if interested:

quick question

Hello, I have my phone interview for the Disney College Program today, I just was curious about something. I am 32 years old, and I was just wondering if there were certain apartments, for people a little older then 18-21 year olds.

Thanks,
Erik

How many CPs have checked in without knowing who their roommates were going to be? I think this is what I will end up doing in a couple weeks.

Pirates League CM?

Hey! I am considering WDWCP Fall 2014 (long way off, I know...) and I wanted to know if one of the roles available on the CP was the Pirates League? I like the idea of BBB, but Pirates League sounds like a lot more fun to me!

On the CP website it lists the two roles together, but does not elaborate at all.

Thanks!

So if I apply for both WDW and DLR and say I prefer DLR in my interview, they can still offer me WDW? I've read there are less CP's at DLR (which makes sense) but I don't want to not be able to do the program because I said I preferred DLR.
Also, does anyone know the likelihood of being hired after your CP at Disneyland? It sounds like from everything I've read anyone who is in good standing can go seasonal at WDW but I don't know the process for DLR. And last question, can you transfer from your CP at WDW to a full-time cm at DLR?
Thank you for your help

Hey! I just got accepted today as a housekeeper. I'm currently a freshman in college and right now I'm declared as a nursing major but really don't know what I want to do. I have a meeting set up with my advisor to see if the credits will transfer here. Would it be worth taking a semester off of college to do this?

Auditions after NLIC

Can you still audition and get accepted for a PT/FT/Seasonal position after you get an NLIC for the DCP?
