    Joanna's right, I did participate in the roommate notification system. This system allows you to know who your roommate is before your arrival. You can either have them choose a roommate for you (by taking a short survey), or if you know the other person's applicant number and name, you can enter that in when applying for the system. There is a section on wdwcollegeprogram.com that explains it pretty well. This system will choose the roommate that you will be sharing a ROOM with, not necessarily a whole apartment (unless you live in a 1-BR).

    you will do great! you get to choose when your interview is. And most likely you be able to do it the next day. i'm pretty sure you will be accepted. if you are willing to do this program and are excited about it (which you are! :woohoo: ) i think you will be accepted.
    Good luck!!

    It's Friday Nov 2nd! My interview was Monday Oct 22nd! I am doing the weird thing where one minute you think that they have to accept you, and the other minute I'm freaking out about what if they don't select me! My interview was perfect, I got my forms faxed like one hour after my interview! Also, I don't know if anyone else ever got this, but the guy that takes care of the CP's time off emailed me the day after my interview and informed me that the the weekend I asked off in the interview was accepted, and if I needed anymore time off just to let him know! So, ya!
    I know that my two weeks from the interview is this coming Monday, but I'm really hoping for one that I get accepted, and two that the letter comes Sat so I dont have to wait all day sunday! Someone please help me out. I'm going crazy!!!!!!!! I want this so bad! Any who! I would like to talk to some folk that are going to go on the 2008 Spring Advantage! Don't be shy! E-Mail me at travis_barber@sci.edu! :scared1:

    You're very welcome, and yes you got it right! :thumbsup2 I think both of you need to go online and request each other as roommates.

    I met my roommate through Facebook (as well as DISboards) too!!

    It's so strange to me that you can request roomies now, or even find out your roomies in advance!

    When I was your age (haha :laughing: ) we had to show up in the apartment to find out who our roomies were!

    Exactly. I have never done the roomie selection, and probably won't next CP either.

    Congrats!

    I return with a dim-witted question. During my phone interview, I completely forgot a very important thing: to request a specific date off. That date happens to be my fianceƩ's graduation!

    Do I email college recruiting with the request, or do I work on it once I get there?

    When is the graduation? Is it towards the middle/end of your CP or in the beginning? If it is towards the end I would wait til you get down, then put in for it off. If it is in the beginning of your CP I would email the recruiter. If course, you could just email, but that's what I would do.

    Thanks for the info, Joanna. My dates are 1/9 - 5/16 and the graduation if 5/3 (not sure what day of the week it is). So definitely towards the end.

    Ah, I see. Well, if you don't want to wait til you get down you can email your recruiter. But I think it would be find if you ask when you get down.

    I called Disney today, and my app. is the top of there list today. Today is the two week mark from my interview. I guess one more week of waiting is not going to kill me. They said that they should be sending a letter out to me ether today or tommarow.
    One more stupid question! Can anyone tell me about how long it takes from the time they sent the letter to when you get it in your mailbox? Basicly, I would like to know if anyone can look at there letter and see what day it was postmarked for and compare it to the day you got it in the mail?

    I know, Im freaking out! These last two week have been the longest two weeks in my life. I want this so bad, and If I don't get it I will be crushed! LOL But anyway, all this time I have been posting I have not really gave any information about myself so here you go!

    Name: Travis Barber
    Age:19
    School: Sophmore at Springfield College in Illinois
    Term I applied for: Spring Advantage 2008
    Role I Applied For: I told them any, but I would really like to be in Front End Opperations!
    E-Mail: travis_barber@sci.edu
    Moods I'm Feeling: :confused3 :thumbsup2 :scared: :hourglass

    So ya! I would love to get to know some of you, just shoot me a e-mail!
