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.

taking the car

I was just wondering for those people who take their cars. Is it worth it to drive it down? And is there anyother way other than driving across country that people use to get it there? I know I will want my car while I'm there if I get the advantage program for sure, but driving all the way from Ca is a big thing!

Another option is to ship your car and pick it up at Orlando Int. airport! Thats what I am doing and I live in Northern Cali .... 44 hours away! I got a discounted rate ....so I am not sure how much a regular shipping cost is ... but mine was 200.00.

i have been on the internet searching and the cheapest I found was $900 something. Do you have the name of the place you are using. $200 sounds like a deal. Even if it's a little more I think it's a shot! TIA

sorry

Sorry to mislead!!!, The place I am using is discounting my shipping because we know people who own the company. Most of the prices I have seen are in the 800.00 range. Which is a lot. I figured for a few days on the road and hotel costs it would be like 500.00 so I guess its just if its worth it. If anyone here has AAA The company they refer you to is a very good one and I believe they will do it for cheaper if you agree to drop it off at one of their main locations and then pick it up at a main location. I think that saves you a couple hundred. Miss Spooky if you pm me I can try and find some of the links to different websites I have found!

I was just talking to someone else the other day and they were talking about a Ductorate degree from the program. What is it and do they still do them because I can't find any info on it.

I'm not positive, but think that is what you receive when you successfully complete one of the classes.

Operations

Hi everyone!
I'm new to this board- I'm applying for an internship for the Spring Quarter program, and I was thinking about a job in Operations. I was thinking about requesting a job at Pirates of the Caribbean- how popular is that one? I read where the Tower of Terror and the HM are 1 and 2... and forgive me if somebody's already answered this one.

Hi. Welcome to DIS. But to answer your question- if you get operations you get put wherever they put you. You can mention where you would like to work, but it's not guaranteed. But since it isn't a popular attraction, you may have a good shot if you got ops.

Thank you for your reply! I didn't mean to give the impression that I wouldn't work anywhere else; I will, gladly! I was just wondering if a lot of people request it. Thanks again!
