Unfortunately no. I'm still eagerly awaiting. I hope it becomes in progress by next week or maybe the end of April. It's been a while =/

I wish I knew
Maybe someone can help us out a bit more. That way maybe I wouldn't have such an open ended expectation.

Same here. I only have 5 weeks of school left, so I am hoping to hear back very soon so I can figure out my summer!

Is it rude to email them about the deadlines for it? I told my mother about the long reply and she said "No news is good news". Though, it's way past the 8 week mark for me and the WDS one is still in submission...

Actually, I just heard back from them earlier today and they said all decisions would be final in two weeks. It still might be a good idea to shoot them an email.

Just a FYI... As someone who's worked with recruiting and is still with the company. Contacting them wanting to hear a reply is useless. They know you have to make plans. They know you need to know if you take summer classes..Ect. They realize this, but in my opinion... Someone who contacts me after they've been told they will get a reply has no patience and doesn't look well. It is also tracked and they will look at that when making a decision. What people don't understand is our staffing fluctuates and a position we might need now... We might not need in 3 weeks.

Maybe you can answer a question. Last fall and now this spring, my son has applied to 4 engineering PIs (for spring 2013, summer 2013 and fall 2013). He almost immediately went "interview stage" for the spring 2013 and sat there, no interview whatsoever, until literally the last day of notifications in December, when he went NLIC. Same thing seems to be happening again. Except this time he was immediately "in progress" for the summer and fall
2013. Again, no interviews whatsoever. On Monday, he went NLIC for the summer one, and so far is still "in progress" for the fall one. He doesn't have his hopes up. Luckily he wasn't holding out for Disney and is searching out other more promising internship opportunities. My question is, WHY put someone "interview stage", "in submission", or "in progress" and let them hang out to dry, if Disney has no intentions of interviewing or hiring them?? Why not just go "NLIC" so they could move on? Thanks for letting me rant!

That's what I thought too, that's why I ended up deciding not to email them and wait a couple more weeks. And no you didn't make me upset whatsoever, you were just being honest I thank for affirming my belief and letting me know.

I am completely with you. I don't understand why the Summer internships in particular seem to run so long (4 1/2 months for me) and keep your hopes up by not going NLIC until the last minute.

Unfortunately, the hard part about waiting is when other internships are offered by other companies and decisions need to be made by a certain deadline. Of course, Disney is the number one choice, but it is hard to turn down offers by other great companies.

Mer - Has your daughter heard anything on her end for the internship? I wish I knew if anyone has gotten an interview yet. I unfortunately think that this might be the last internship I'm still in the running for.

Well, I guess no news is good news.... Maybe? Hopefully we will know something by the 26th.
