I have another question. I was reading the website about who is eligible for hte program and it said this:

Quote:
2. Meet Their School's Requirements for Participation
Students also must meet any additional criteria their school requires for participation in our program. Schools will be contacted to verify eligibility.
My school will not offer my any credit for it, so obviously that means as far as I know, that my school has no rules about it. Does that mean that my school won't let anybody go? Do most schools have rules about this program? That part confused me.

My school isn't giving me any credit for it either.....basically, it means that to do it you have to take a semester off and probably fill out a form to be readmitted....you would need to talk to probably your registrar to see how your school would handle it....I go down Aug. 23rd and they told me just to fill out a form online in october and they guarenteed that I would get my full financial aid back....Just ask your school, they'll probably work with you.

Well, the good thing for me is that I will have graduated already when I do it (because, I simply cannot take a semester off when I'm so close to graduating). So, I'm doing it fall of 2007, after I graduate this year. So I won't need to talk to anybody to my school about it all.

I was just wondering that since my school gives no credit for it, if when Disney contacts my school asking for elibigility, if they will automatically say that nobody can do the program.

No. Other people have done the CP and not gotten any credit for it.

That's good. So, what will my school tell Disney? That there are no rules for it? I'm just afraid my school will instantly tell Disney that they give no credit for it and that nobody from the school can go, even if other schools have allowed students to go with no credit. Everytime I mentioned it to anybody at my school the idea was really shot down, they hated the idea! So I just have this feeling that when Disney asks my school, they will tell them to go away!

It's not really up to your school in the end, especially if you've already graduated. The only thing the school does is verify that you are (or were in your case) a student there and your GPA. They can't lie. You don't need your college's "permission" to go.

So my school has no power to say "No, X can't go?" That's good!

I thought of another question. Do they require you to bring any paperwork as far as medical history goes? Do I need to get a physical before I go? I had one very recently. Also, when you are down there, do they do any medical things on you to make sure you are healthy enough to take on the role?

Well, it's really not permission - It's more of a "you must be within good acedemic standing" with your school. Different schools have different guidelines to what good standing may be. Some schools it is just "passing" - other schools it is a 2.0+ grade average.

I'm definitely going to apply for the cp for next spring. Do you all think I'd have a better chance of getting the role that really want (costuming) if I did the e-presentation as soon as it was available, or will it probably not make a difference and I should just wait an extra month or so until they come to my school? Has anyone done the e-presentation and then gone to the school presentation anyway? BTW, I'd still love any info on the costuming role if anyone has any!

I have. For the Fall 2006 presentation, I did the e-presentation (because I wanted to attendant an audition, and my school's presentation was 2+ weeks after the audition I wanted to attendant). So I did that, and then I attended my school's presentations just for fun. And I would also say do the presentation ASAP (just my opinion).

PartOfYourWorld,

the costuming role means either working at the Cast Member Zoom buildings (costuming locations for Cast Members) or the entertainment area (costuming for entertainment CMs, ie characters and parades).

Prolly means you wash the costumes or help with costuming checkout.

Also with the Costuming roll you help do minor repairs. Sewing on buttons and the like. I think, the best way to get the roll is to apply as fast as you can, even if it means the e-presentation. Which is seriously just a video that tells you about the CP program. Wonderful selling tool, but not a lot of information. Then you set up the phone interview like anyone else. I tried with the e-presentation, and didn't make it. Good luck to you though!! I hope you get it!

Thanks so much for all the help everyone! I guess that means I'll be applying the second they put the application up... : )! I have a really strong background in sewing (what I hope to be teaching once I graduate) and have even worked at a drycleaners before so maybe that'll help a little. I can hope at least! Sorry to hear you didn't get in C.C.H.M. Thanks for the luck though because I'll def be needing it.

I agree, hop on the e-presentation opportunity first chance you get. I think it does give you a better chance at getting what you want. Also, don't forget to mention your sewing background in your phone interview and mention that you'd really enjoy the costuming role. They like it when applicants know what they'd really like to do on the program.
