    Congratulations to everyone accepted recently, and best of luck to those of you still waiting! ^^

    Time to cover up those tattoos and take those piercings out, darn! ;)

    Funny thing is I haven't received the Disney Look message, but probably because of several reason...

    Hello, excellent name Xion! Definitely stay positive, and keep busy so time goes by quick! Pending is definitely on the better side of everything!

    As far as departments for roles go an their acceptances, there's not really a reasoning behind everything. The way I've figured things is that they're giving more available roles out simple enough, whereas lower volume roles are given out sparsely. I haven't heard of many costuming, but again there could be that one person who doesn't go on the internet.

    Since Character Performers (Entertainment) roles are per audition, they are the one exception to the rule. Nor are positions handed out in a particular order/fashion as it's on an as-need bassis, really.

    You've got pretty good hopes since you chose Merchandise and Quick Service Food and Beverage as there's typically a good amount of availibility for both! Keep Positive!

    Have a Most Magical Day! :smickey:

    Haha none of that here.

    ^^^ This. Don't call 24/25 older. I'm turning 25 in September and my younger sister loves to remind me how old I am and I think I'm still pretty young :lmao:

    I was pended last semester for 3 months and didn't receive an acceptance. I replied last week had my interview and wed and my acceptance letter fri. I received custodial, though I listed little to know interest, I am happy for the opportunity. Heard it can be quite fun.

    I took my interview March 14th at 8:15 PM. I received my "thank you for interviewing" email about an hour later. Besides that I have yet to hear anything back.

    Hey everyone!
    My name is Jordan, I am about to graduate from Rutgers with a Double in Theater and Labor Relations.

    I was just accepted to my first program for Fall Advantage in Attractions!

    I'm really excited, though I am also still in the midst of waiting for answers from several on-property internships.

    Even if I don't get those, I am still excited to be coming down to Florida for seven months!

    Anyone else arriving on June 3rd?

    Hey everyone!

    Congrats on all of those who got accepted! I am so happy for you! :) I just received my second pending letter. Does this mean anything? Has anyone else received the same email?

    Thanks! Good luck to all of those who keep waiting!

    It's normal; they're just reminding you that you're still being considered.

    I have, and I believe a few others here have as well? I had my interview on February 25th, got the Pending email the next day, and then heard back about my acceptance 2 weeks later (last week--the 13th). I got one of my top choices, so don't give up hope! :goodvibes

    I was pending for just a day or 2 short of 3 weeks before getting my 2/3rd choice (i told them that they were a tie as far as favorite goes). Try not to think about it to much, just keep your mind on school and you will get your answer soon enough :)
