    Good luck with the waiting...I waited about that long to do my first program (first found out about the program in 2007 as a Junior in H.S. and just finished my first program this Summer.

    This is going to be a while but I hope to do 2018 fall or 2019 spring. I just started my freshman year in high school so I have a long way to go!

    It doesn't matter about your age! I'm doing the program now and my friend's roommate is 28! And if you don't feel comfortable living in the CP apartments, you can always apply to live off site!

    My DS decided last night that he wants to follow in his Disney Sister's footsteps and do a College Program too :) She did her program in August of 2008 through May of 2009 - she stayed seasonal until she graduated in May of 2011.

    DS then wants to after he graduates from college do a PI in Ops Management and hopefully be able to transition into Ops Managment full time.

    DS is in 8th grade but has a pretty clear plan!

    Hey...don't be discouraged....one of my DD's best friends (who know works at Guest Relations at EPCOT by the way - full time :) ) --- after his program was over he graduated from college - wasn't able to find a job in his "field"...he enrolled in community college to just be able to be eligible for the College Program - he did another College Program THEN before that last College Program was over he applied and got a PI in Guest Relations. :cool1:

    So there are ways to make your dreams come true :cloud9:

    So I've applied.

    AHHHHHHH. I made past the WBI and my phone interview is scheduled for Wednesday, September 19th at 8:15 pm. I'm beyond relieved that I've made it this far, but still incredibly nervous about the phone interview!

    I just wanted to update y'all since I've been posting here for nearly three years! Those of you that have long waits ahead- don't focus too much on the CP right now. You'll have time to worry about it when you actually apply!

    CONGRATULATIONS!:cheer2:

    I'm obviously now very nervous for you to receive your acceptance email. AS SOON as it comes let us know!

    And I know I shouldn't focus too much on it, but it's just so dang hard not to:)

    Congrats! You'll have to stay in touch and keep us updated! How is everyone doing? My semester has been crazy thus far! I am looking forward to my family trip to WDW this December, 12/20-12/29. I'm planning on working a couple of seasonal shifts as well while I'm down there.
