There is a girl from our hometown that was just accepted and she just applied the first time and made it in. She has already graduated.

I think it's actually to your advantage to do the program after graduation.

My first program was last spring, during my junior year. I really wanted to stay. I even looked into applying to transfer to SoCal schools so I could do my senior year while working at Disneyland. But it was really hard -- by the time I realized I for sure wanted to stay, applications were long overdue, and schools weren't accepting spring transfers, so I would have had to wait over a year to go back to school. So I ended up coming home

I graduate in a few weeks, and this fall, I'm doing the program again. I have no definite plans for the semester after my CP, so I am free to apply for an extension for for a PI!

I'm graduating this month and I got accepted for a Fall CP. I was pending for what felt like forever (about 2 months) but it's looking like that had to do more with my interview than my class standing, judging by everyone else's responses.

And I would definitely apply for both the CP and the PIs, especially if you've never done a CP before. I applied for 3 PIs, all of which were in my major, and got denied from all three without even getting a screening interview. Granted, I had never done a CP or had any experience in my field, but I'm a 4.0 graduating senior and I had a good portfolio set up. But, they definitely value experience and they're extremely competitive. So unless you have a lot of experience in your field, definitely apply for both.
All you need is faith and trust...oh, and something I forgot. Dust....a little bit of pixie dust.

I graduate next May and I'm planning to do the Fall 2014 CP if I'm not able to secure an internship. Then afterwards I'd really like to apply for a Disney PI! I applied for three of them this past application period and made it to the final stages for two, but my scholarship won't allow me to take a semester off, even if it's for an internship with credit. : I got accepted to the CP my freshman year but wasn't able to do it for the same reason. Ugh! But that won't be an issue once I graduate, thank goodness.

So that's the plan for now! Working for Disney is my dream, especially the DFTW program, so really, I'd rather do the CP and a PI than try to get an internship with another company.

Good luck to everyone applying!
