Anybody accepted a PI yet?

I just accepted the PI at the Animal Kingdom Vet Hospital. I'm very excited! It was my second time applying. Funny thing is I got a rejection email at first (this past Tuesday), and I thought oh well. However, the recruiter kept calling me, and I initially thought they had made a mistake. When I finally spoke to him last Friday, he explained that I was actually accepted! :D

I'm considering the Disney housing, but I'm kind of against the idea of sharing a room with somebody. I'm not against room mates, though. I just really wouldn't want somebody in the same room as I am just because I'm terribly messy and I'm sure they would hate me after just a couple of weeks.

I was curious if anybody has considered setting up an external apartment rental maybe at Bella with somebody else in this forum? I haven't found out how much rent is, but I feel like it is not unreasonable to pay around the same price (~$500 monthly) as Disney and not have to share a room if we had room mates in the same suite at some other apartment complex.

Good luck to anybody still interviewing!
Congrats on getting accepted! Had you done the CP before applying? I'm interested in this or similar PI's for next session and I'm interested in hearing about your experience!

Despite not getting a PI (or maybe I will - CP Alumni ones are still in consideration), I'm moving down for the college program. As I stated before, doing the CP again makes me feel a little stagnant. To cut down on that icky feeling, I'm not living in CP housing. As of now, I'm in the process of applying for a 1 bedroom in Bella. I don't know if they're running special on other sizes for those of you who want roommates, but I know that if you move in in December a 1br is on special for 865. Their normal rate is 915 so I think it's pretty good. Just sharing some info!

If anyone is looking for a place to live, my friend and I are looking for one more for a 3BR/2bath at Alexandria parc view. Rent works out to 392/month plus 1/3 utilities which is pretty amazing for the area and location. Its about 7 minutes from MK cast parking.

I'm glad to see that there are still people waiting to find out if they got their PI! My daughter is really hoping to get an Entertainment Tech PI, but hasn't heard anything since her interview. Does anyone know if they normally interview a second time for that? Or request a transcript? We're just trying to figure out if she's still in the running. What's the latest you think she might hear?

Thanks, and good luck to everyone and anyone else still crossing their fingers like we are!

Well the last day for notice is Dec 7th so no matter what she should know something within the next month.

Good luck to her!

Thanks Delmar411 -- I'm not sure why we didn't know that, but we didn't, so that's really good information. At least we know not to give up hope til then!

Is that for all the PIs or just the Entertainment Tech? My poor son is still in limbo of "Interview Stage"!! At this point he would just like the courtesy of letting him know if he is still in the running or not. Never even had one phone interview. Today he sent an email to the only contact address he had, asking very politely, if he is still being considered. We'll see if that generates any action on the dashboard!

As far as I know that is for all PIs.

Thanks for your response! My son heard back from his email to Disney, and they basically said "sit tight, we will be contacting you by email, not phone, and you have not been forgotten"! I'm glad he sent it - now he at least knows where he stands and all is not lost!

Does anyone know anything about PIs at Disneyland and any good housing recommendations? I applied for the heck of it for a DL PI but I have no idea what I would do if I got it. I know nothing about living in CA, other than it is expensive. Totally freaked out though because if I got it, I wouldn't want to turn it down. Any PI seems like the chance of a lifetime.

Because of that reason alone, now watch, you WILL get it!!! Sorry can't help you with CA info, but just had to point out the irony! Best of luck to you!

Right?! That's what I was thinking too and it stresses me out so bad.

Woohoo. I got the PI. As I hoped the guy who got it first got something he wanted more and that made a spot for me. I am here now looking for housing. Just want to share my joy with those of you that have been supportive. Woohoo

Congrats!!! I saw he was offered his first choice and was wondering when they'd offer it to you.
