It's for anyone, really. It's the flags that people wear on the nametags.

You should be fine for Spring 2007. And you could do an E-presentation if you wanted to do it sooner.

Since my presentation is about 2 weeks away now, I was wondering how easy it is to schedule a phone interview for the next day. I have a midterm the following day at 11:15 until 12:10 and was wondering if I would be able to schedule a phone interview for somewhere after 1.

Yeah, you'll be fine. I'm a rep this semester, and I'm not having my presentation until November either. Heck, when I interviewed the first time, I didn't interview until April 12th, and went on the Fall program. For some reason, the interviews are always so late in my state.

They're very good about working with your schedule. They'll bend over backwards to make sure you get that interview.

Thanks for the reply Hogbunny, but now I have another question for anyone that may be able to provide me with some answers. I went to my co-op office today and was discussing the College Program with them and they told me that my school wouldn't give me credits for it, because due to my major which is accounting I would have to have taken a total of 84 credits to receive credit. They did tell me though that if its something I really want to do to go do it and have a great time, but they also said it may affect my full time status and that could cause a problem for any loans I have, which may cause them to become due. So I was wondering if anyone else was in this kind of situation and could provide me some guidance, because the internship is something I really want to do and I've already met people that I'm looking forward to getting to know down there, so my mind is pretty much made up that I am going to do this if I get in, I just want to get other people's opinions.

I just got accepted a fw weeks ago for the Spring 2007. I got me thinking about different things i might want to do while I'm down there. One of them is check out the backstages of the theme parks. For anyone who has done the CP before, can go backstage to hte theme parks?....FOr example If I worked at MGM-studios but wanted to check out backstage epcot or MK, could I do that? Would it be easy or a pain in the butt?

thanks

You're technically not supposed to. They don't want people walking around backstage if they don't have to. The backstage areas are for people working.

hi all I just joined the boards the other day and it took me some time to read thru this thread. I'm really thinking about doing spring advantage. I just am worried about losing my insurence since I won't be in school. Is there anyone who has had to deal with that? Oh and if you get a role in entertainment what would you actually be doing? And one last thing... people talk about auditioning at the end of their CP. What is that for? To stay on as a regular CM or what. Sorry I have so many questions and really trying to decide to do it! TIA

If you get entertainment, you could either be a character attendant or character performer. A character attendant assists the characters and helps the guests with photos and stuff like that. And a character performer, well you get the idea. As for the audition at the end of the CP, this allows CPs to extend for an additional 6 months (hopefully in entertainment). You would still be a CP (unless you change status).

Question Entertainment Auditions

I am planning to apply for Fall 2007's CP and would really love to work in the Entertainment role.

What if the the CP reps don't come to my school until late spring (e.g., April 2007), but the auditions are held before the presentation at my school?

Can I do the audition before the interview?
Or would it be better to do the e-presentation before the audition?

You have to have done the presentation/interview before the audition. So I would say do the e-presentation.
