    There isn't a presentation anywhere near me, so to get the ball rolling for Spring 2013 do I just watch the online version and then talk to my academic advisor?

    I'm only a Freshman, but that doesn't matter, right? As long as I'm enrolled when I apply everything else is irrelevant? Do you guys think it might be a better idea to wait and apply for Fall 2013 instead?

    And last, I don't have any prior work experience, will this negatively affect my chances? Most of the threads I've read here say they ask about work experience during the interview.

    I've wanted to do the CP ever since I was a kid so now that it's time to actually apply I feel a little overwhelmed :p

    *You don't actually have to attend a presentation. You can do everything online

    *Doesn't matter. I know lots of people who applied in the first semester and were accepted

    *It shouldn't make a difference. I know people (myself included) that the CP was the first job

    So is 17 minutes a decent length for the phone interview? I was pretty nervous so I was kind of short and to the point with some of the questions, but I did make sure to ask her some things after we finished.

    She was super friendly so I'm not too worried about coming off poorly, but it can't hurt to ask you guys I guess

    No 17 minutes is great! I've seen where some people's phone interview only lasts 5-8 minutes! You have nothing to worry about! :)
