For fall 2012 I was pended for 3 months and got NLIC, but at least 5 of my friends were pended for 1 month and got accepted in their first choice role and location

Oh my gosh, that makes me feel so much better. xP

Today marks 3 weeks that I've been pending now! I was really wondering if/when too long is too long. But that made me more hopeful

If I remember right they do wait for your audition to accept you for any(?) role... I remember either hearing or reading something about auditions and that you will basically be pending until after your audition. Dont be too nervous though, it might just be the departments you want havent chosen or waiting for something else. Either way if you have been pending this long, Id take it as a sign that they do want you but that they havent chosen what to do with you yet

Hasn't been true for a few years now. Now they accept you and then if you qualify they switch you to entertainment.

you literally can be pended until the date they gave you and longer, they have moved the date back 2 weeks before

This was true at one time many years ago. No longer.

They talk about your options if you receive an offer for another role prior to the audition in the FAQ's above the audition info.

Congrats to everyone who got accepted in yesterday's wave! Merchandise was my number 2 choice, so I'm getting worried now, but I'm hoping that they're considering me for character attendant instead =)

Ugh, I just don't want to be pending anymore haha

Please disregard my statement, what I saw must have been old and not realized it. So sorry but keep in mind that doesnt mean they wont pick you

I kind of had the same thing happen to me. I got an email and saw it was from Disney. I thought it was about the PIs I applied for but no.... it was about the Disney look. Ugh
