Just got off the phone with Suzanne for my interview and I think it went well She was so sweet and very interesting to talk to - my interview lasted 23 minutes. I was so nervous because I think I missed the call on my cell phone even though it was right by me so she called my Google voice # and I felt it was like being on speaker phone.

I found out that the May CP starting date is for locals (which I am) who wouldn't need housing so I requested housing which would start in August. It would be a 45-60 minute commute for me so I decided housing would be best and hopefully fun!

She asked questions like:

Describe how I handled a difficult guest/person in the past.
Why the College Program?
My top 2 roles and why I chose them.
As the first person a guest would encounter, how would I make their experience a memorable one?

Now to watching my Dashboard day and night for the next 2-3 weeks!

Hey!!!!!

It's so wonderful to see a borad for older CP's doing the program! When I first decided to apply my age was one of the main things I was worried about, however I went to a campus presentation during the Spring application round and one of the past CP's was a 50 year old woman! It definitely but my heart at ease to learn that there is NO SUCH THING as too old for Disney!

Anyways, I'm Krystal, Im 29 years old and this will be my first time applying for the Disney College Program! I applied last Friday whenapps came out, and I interviewed Sunday with a gentleman named Will! I thin the interview went well, but the longer it takes for acceptances to come out, the more holes I begin to see in the interview! Eek!

Anyways, Im looking forward to getting to know you all as we go through this process together!

Welcome Krystal!

It is nice to have a place for us "older" CP hopefuls.
I think I did really well with the phone interview, but the waiting is nerve wracking. I check my dashboard a couple times a day. My DH is asking everyday if I have heard anything. I have read that some acceptances for the fall advantage have gone out already. BTW someone asked earlier, I applied for WDW.
Waiting patiently.

Just thought I'd update everyone that I got my "Pended" email - that was really quick! Interviewed Thursday night and 1 1/2 days later I get the email. It seems they are either doing this quicker than last year. I'm happy I didn't get rejected at least! Has any other older CP hopefuls received news yet?

I'm still waiting for any answer. Applied & WBI on the 8th then phone interview on the 12th. In my book no news is good news.

Congratulations e-mail received. I have been accepted. I just don't know what role b/c there is an issue with the link. I'm not the only one with the problem, on Facebook & Tumblr a slew of kids are having the same issue.
I will let you all know later what it is whenever I find out.

I don't know dates or role yet. Waiting for computer glitch to be fixed. Not sure if FA or just Fall. And may just get apartment and have my DS stay with me instead of the dorms at his school. Really stoked.

Congrats on being accepted! It's a pretty common issue right now, and most likely will be resolved first thing tomorrow morning when they arrive back in the office at about 8AM EST. Whoever that person is will have the pleasure of reading a couple hundred emails regarding the issue too, most likely.

I stalk the internet a bit too much... it's been an issue since the office close at about 5PM EST.

Have a Most Magical Day, and let me know what role you get!

Judging by the number of people that happened to in the facebook group (myself included) I think it may be a few thousand!
