Good luck!! Sometimes the questions you get asked have little or nothing to do with the roles you express interest in; they just want to see how you handle certain questions and respond to situations. Welcome to the waiting game!!

This waiting game is already getting to me and I'm only on day 4!
Normally I wouldn't even think about getting any results for another 10 days, but with the huge influx of NLICs and pendings, not to mention the surprise early acceptances, I'm starting to get antsy!

Me too! Though I'm still in progress for Disneyland because I assume they haven't started accepting people

Are roommates accommodating with diseases? Because I have a disease called Cystic Fibrosis and the medications I take are very expensive and require refrigeration. I also have another machine that must be used for my disease. It's about the size of a big snack box, it must be used everyday and it takes 30 minutes to use a day. What it does is shakes my chest (I put it on like a life jacket) and it shakes my chest. So it makes a bit of noise, but not enough to hear outside of a room (you could maybe hear it faintly).

I have a friend with Cystic Fibrosis so I'm fairly familiar with the treatments! I'm sure that if you explain your situation to potential roommates they will be very understanding. Anyone who isn't probably isn't good roommate material!

Most people are human and are understanding of medical issues. I have an autoimmune disease and as a result I really need to sleep 7-8 hours a night. Early on in the program they were really rude and kept me awake late at night because they were so loud. Eventually they calmed down. I also had medication that had to be refrigerated. No one ever touched it. If they did I would have contacted housing. (You can get termed for stealing food, so I would imagine tampering with someone's medication would get you the same fate)

My suggestion is to be open and honest with your roommates about your condition. Explain what you need to do to treat it and how it affects you. Like I said most people will have no problems. You could also always try to meet roommates on here or on facebook ahead of time. That way you know they will be understanding of your condition and won't need to worry about it as much.

It's nice to see that someone can relate to me. Thanks for all the help you've been!

Does anyone know of any acceptances past the few attractions people that went out on Thursday? It seemed like we'd be hearing more people get their letters by now.

my interview is Friday and I still don't have my top 3! The roles I put high interest were character attendant, photopass, merchandise, hospitality and bbb. Since bbb is so hard I probably won't pick that but otherwise I'm not sure. character attendant would be so fun but I'm also not that outgoing so I don't know how good I'd be.

How long is the whole process and what is the whole process of becoming an intern for the culinary program?

Also, what's the fall advantage and spring advantage? What's different from just the fall and spring? From what I understand, there are fall, fall advantage, spring, and spring advantage, correct?

The Fall and Spring advantage programs are longer and include part of the summer.
